This year’s Miss USA Pageant experienced some outside competition.
With game five of the NBA Finals overlapping this year’s Miss USA Pageant, it is not too shocking that the girls brought in lower ratings than usual. Hollywood Reporter explains that the Donald Trump-owned pageant was down 28 percent from last year, bringing in 4.6 million total viewers.
The NBA Finals brought in 14.2 million total viewers, according to The Wrap. Jimmy Kimmel Live Game Night had 5.6 million total viewers, right behind the Kia NBA Countdown with 6.9 million viewers.
