Sunday was not a pretty night for the broadcast networks, as only three programs managed to get above a 1.0 in adults 18-49. The season finale of “The Walking Dead” may have stolen some viewers in the 9 o’clock hour, but that doesn’t explain the fractional numbers everywhere else.
CBS’ broadcast of the Academy of Country Music Awards topped the night with a 2.1 and 10.85 million viewers, down a bit from last year’s 2.3 and 11.2 million. “60 Minutes” (1.1) and NBC’s “Little Big Shots” (1.2, down half a point from last week) were the only others above 1.0.
“The Simpsons” (0.9), “Chicago Justice” (0.9), “Once Upon a Time” (0.8), “Shades of Blue” (0.7) and “Making History” (0.6) all drew season lows. ABC had a minor bit of positive news as “Match Game” (0.6) provided a bit of an upgrade over the canceled “Time After Time” and “American Crime” (0.4) was up a tenth of a point from last week’s series low.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.9/7||0.9/3||0.7/3||0.6/2|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
