ABC’s Bee broadcast draws 6.1 million

June 3, 2009

The Thursday, May 28, broadcast of the Scripps National Spelling Bee finals drew 6.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research data published in USA TODAY.

That’s up sharply from 4.9 million viewers last year — when ABC broadcast the Bee finals on a Friday night — but lower than the 8.5 million viewers who watched the finals in 2006 and the 7.1 million in 2007, according to Nielsen.
