Must See TV in Miami/Fort Lauderdale

Yes, I'm a TV geek, the guy who enjoys looking at the ratings as if they were sports scores.  In that spirit, here's a look at the most watched TV shows in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale market for the week of June 3-June 9. 
Of note: The Miami Heat games sizzle for ABC affiliate WPLG , boosting its 11 p.m. newscast on game nights. While telenovelas continue to heat ratings up for the Spanish language networks, Telemundo is also on a high note thanks to La Voz Kids (#13 with 166,000 total viewers) -  that's the younger and Spanish version of NBC's popular The Voice singing competition but with Paulina Rubio in the center red spinning chair.  WSVN-Ch. 7's 10 p.m. newscast (June 5) was #25 for the week with 137,000 viewers.

Here are some of the top programs. Numbers listed as total viewers.
