Ratings: Match Game Improves Time After Time Slot; ACM Awards Dominate

Time After Time Cancelled

ABC’s Match Game resumed Season 2 on Sunday night with 2.5 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, improving upon time slot predecessor Time After Time‘s final numbers by 32 and 50 percent.

Leading out of that, American Crime (1.7 mil/0.4) in turn reversed its downward trend, ticking up in both measures. Opening ABC’s night, however, Once Upon a Time (2.81 mil/0.8) dropped a handful of eyeballs while returning to its demo low.

Elsewhere on the night….

CBS | The ACM Awards drew 10.9 mil and a 2.1, dipping juuuust a bit from last year and dominating the night on both counts.
