NEW YORK (AP) -- Nielsen says viewers flocked to the limited ration of fresh fare on last week's rerun-riddled schedule.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals was by far the week's big attraction, drawing more than 24 million viewers to ABC to land the week's top spot. NBC grabbed the next three slots with its participation-variety shows "America's Got Talent," ''World of Dance" and "Little Big Shots."

Overall, ABC remained dominant in prime time for a third week, averaging more than 5 million viewers, with NBC the runner-up.

ABC's "World News Tonight" was front-runner among evening newscasts. Fox News Channel remained the week's most popular cable network.
