Ratings: American Music Awards Low But Steady, Sunday Night Football Slips


In the latest TV ratings, ABC’s broadcast of the American Music Awards on Sunday night averaged 4 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating (per finals), exactly matching last year’s numbers — though still a far cry from what the kudoscast last did pre-pandemic (6.7 mil/1.8).

Over on NBC, meanwhile, Sunday Night Football (11.9 mil/3.0) was down about 15 percent from last week’s preliminary numbers.

CBS’ The Equalizer (6.4 mil/0.6) and NCIS: Los Angeles (5.1 mil/0.5) each dropped a few eyeballs while steady in the demo.

The CW’s Legends of the Hidden Temple (230K/0.0) dipped in the demo.

And over on Fox, The Simpsons did 3.9 mil/1.1, followed by The Great North‘s 2.1 mil/0.6, Bob’s Burgers‘ 1.8 mil/0.6) and Family Guy‘s 1.6 mil/0.6.

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!
