When the NBA playoffs take the TV court even the most popular shows find the competition tough. Last week’s No. 1 program was the Golden State-Dallas conference finals matchup, in which the Warriors extended their winning streak to three out of three. The first two games were among the top 10 programs, with playoff games overall claiming a quarter of the top 20, according to Nielsen figures released Tuesday. Viewers fit in time for favorite series including CBS’ “FBI,” whose next-to-last episode for the season the most-watched drama. The network pulled this week’s season finale because its plot was too close to Tuesday’s mass killings at a Texas school.

The documentary film about the pandemic-delayed Tokyo Olympics has had it first public viewing. The 120-minute film is produced by Japanese Naomi Kawase and looks at the Olympics primarily from the point of view of the athletes and those around them. The film will be viewed later this week at the Cannes Film Festival. Kawase has also made another film looking at the Tokyo Olympics away from the athletes. It will debut at a later date. The documentary of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics by Kon Ichikawa, titled “Tokyo Olympiad," is generally regarded as one of the most important in the genre. Also in that category is Leni Riefenstahl’s “Olympia” from the 1936 Berlin Games.

There’s trying to put together intriguing matchups and considerations with a short turnaround. Add into it a new television partner paying $1.2 billion a season to carry those games for 11 years, and the pressure is ratcheted up even more. Yet, despite all the hurdles. Amazon Prime Video is pleased about its slate of games for its first season as the exclusive carrier of “Thursday Night Football.” The Los Angeles Chargers-Kansas City Chiefs matchup on Sept. 15 was announced two weeks ago while the remaining 14 games were unveiled on Thursday.
