Ratings: ACM Awards Drop vs. April 2019 But Still Dominate Wednesday

Ratings Academy of Country Music Awards

In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ broadcast of the virtual, pandemic-delayed Academy of Country Music Awards averaged 6.6 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating, down about 33 percent from last year (when it aired in-season, in April) but still dominating Wednesday in both measures.


NBC | America’s Got Talent (5.1 mil/0.6) dropped a few eyeballs week-to-week but held onto its season low in the demo.

THE CW | The 100 (683K/0.2) and Coroner (754K/0.1) were both steady in the demo, with the former delivering its largest audience in 11 episodes.

ABC | The Notre-Dame: Our Lady of Paris special did 1.4 mil/0.2.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
