Ratings: American Music Awards Dip Slightly, The Simpsons Surges

American Music Awards Ratings

ABC’s J.Lo-hosted American Music Awards was down but by no means out.

Sunday’s telecast drew 11 million viewers and a 3.5 demo rating, off only slightly from 2014’s 11.6 million/3.8 rating. It easily marked ABC’s highest-rated Sunday of the season.


CBS | Madam Secretary (10.6 mil/1.4) slipped three tenths, The Good Wife (7.8 million/0.9) dipped two tenths to fall below a 1.0, and CSI: Cyber (6.2/0.9) rose in viewers while steady in the demo.

FOX | Buoyed by its football lead-in, The Simpsons (5.6 million/2.3) more than doubled its demo rating vs. its last fresh episode, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine (3.9/1.7), Family Guy (3.3 million/1.6) and Last Man on Earth (3.3 million/1.6) posted nice increases as well.

NBC | Sunday Night Football (16 mil/5.6) slipped 10 and 14 percent from last week’s fast nationals.
