Shaq Vs…. Nielsen?

Shaq Vs., the reality show Shaquille O’Neal stole from former teammate Steve Nash, ended its second season Tuesday night. The finale’s ratings fell from the previous year, although the August 3 and August 17 episodes were the most-watched shows in the two-season run.

Still, Shaq Vs. isn’t exactly putting up slam dunk numbers.

Shaq Vs. was the lowest rated of the five original programs on broadcast television Tuesday night, and the second-least viewed. Reality competition Wipeout (ABC; 3.8, 6.933 mil), America’s Got Talent (NBC; 6.7, 11.504 mil) and Minute To Win It (NBC; 3.6, 5.919 mil) put up significantly larger numbers – though Shaq Vs. topped Minute To Win It in the 18-49 demo.

That’s more like an air ball.
