Sunday cable ratings: VMAs tumble from 2015, ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ steady

vmas-2016-ratings-aug-28-16

The 2016 Video Music Awards took a pretty sizable hit in the ratings, falling about 17 percent in viewers and more than 30 percent in viewers.

The show — which aired on MTV and nine other Viacom-owned channels — drew a combined 6.5 million viewers and a 3.9 rating in adults 18-49. MTV had by far the largest share of the audience with a 1.8 in the 18-49 demographic 3.27 million viewers — the smallest number since at least 1994 (when Nielsen started measuring the show) for the VMAs on MTV.

The combined number is down from a 4.7 in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers in 2015. The show’s audience has declined for three consecutive years.

“Fear the Walking Dead” was steady week to week with a 1.6 (although that ties its series low). “Power” dipped a bit to a 0.8 on Starz. “The Night Of” scored a season-high 0.9 with its finale, and “The Strain” premiered to a 0.6.
