Part 1 of NBC’s Justin Bieber: All Around the World special on Wednesday night drew 3.3 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating with them oldsters in the 18-49 demo. That puts it 47 percent below what the Peacock’s recent Adele music special scored.
NBC’s Biebfest thus only bested The CW’s Top Model repeats in the pre-bedtime 8 o’clock hour, trailing shows such as Dogs in the City and ABC sitcom reruns. (Reminder: Part 2 airs tonight at 8 pm.)
Elsewhere on Wednesday….
* So You Think You Can Dance‘s Vegas round led the night in total audience and in the demo, slipping just a hair week-to-week to 6.5 mil and a 2.4.
* ABC’s Duets (4.2 mil/1.1) held steady in the demo and even gained a few eyeballs this week; it returns to Thursday nights starting June 28.
* CBS’ aforementioned Dogs show was down out 10 percent, to 5 mil and a 1.0.
