Academy of Country Music Awards

Ratings: Academy of Country Music Awards Drop, ABC Dramas Tick Up

CBS’ Sunday broadcast of the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards drew 11.2 million total viewers and a 2.2 demo rating, dropping 30 and 40 percent from last year— where it did not air opposite a little show called The Walking Dead. That said, the kudoscast topped broadcast TV on both measures, barely outdrawing NBC’s Little Big Shots.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

NBC | The aforementioned Little Big Shots (11.1 mil/1.8) added  a few eyeballs week-to-week but dipped a tenth in the demo. The Carmichael Show (5 mil/1.0) and Crowded (3.6 mil/0.8) were steady.

ABC | Once Upon a Time (3.8 mil/1.1), bubble drama The Family (3.2 mil/0.7) and Quantico (3.7 mil/1.0) all ticked up from last week’s series lows.

FOX | Bordertown (1 mil/0.4), Cooper Barrett (990K/0.4) and The Simpsons (2.3 mil/1.0) all dropped sharply to season lows. Bob’s Burgers (2 mil/1.0) was steady, while The Last Man on Earth (2.1 mil/0.9) slipped to series lows.

    Like country music but way too many award shows! Like OUAT and Quantico but these numbers certainly should make Castle a renewal if contract issues work out.

    I think you mean COUNTRY music awards instead of county music awards.

    Sorry to be the grammar police.

    I was disappointed that HGN wasn’t on last night because NBC had to preempted the “season” finale and got replaced by Dateline. No word yet on when the ladies’ night episode of HGN is going to air on a later date.

    When you have a quiet day, can you give us the ratings for the various late/talk shows – get the feeling some are struggling
