NBC cinched first place in the ratings for the week ended June 11, thanks in part to the season finale of the game show “Deal or No Deal.”

“Deal,” the No. 1 show among adults 18-49, got a 5.6 rating, which includes both live viewers and those who watch shows the same day on digital video recorders, according to Nielsen Media Research.

That outpaced its closest competition in the age group, game 1 of the NBA finals (4.8), and game 2 (5.3).

Original programming dominated this week’s top five programs in adults 18 to 49, including the finale of NBC’s “The Apprentice” and the Wednesday edition of Fox’s “So You Think you Can Dance,” which both scored a 4.4 in the demo and tied for No. 4.

NBC was the No.1 network in adults 18 to 49 for the week with a 2.5, followed by Fox (2.4), ABC (2.1), and CBS (2.0).
