Ratings: Macy's Fireworks Dim vs. 2018; Elementary Goes Low on Holiday

Macys Fireworks Ratings 2019

NBC’s broadcast of the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on Thursday drew 5.9 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, down 20 and 25 percent from last year’s numbers (yet still leading the suuuuper-quiet night in both measures).

An edited Macy’s Fireworks encore placed second for the night with 4.3 mil and a 0.8. Most everything else came in a distant third.

Thursday’s only other fresh broadcast-TV fare was an episode of CBS’ Elementary, which ticked down to 2.9 mil and a 0.3, marking its smallest audience ever and matching its all-time demo low (set midway through last season).

Ratings for Presidential Donald Trump’s “Salute to Airports America,” which was covered by at least Fox News, have yet to be released.
