The Academy of Country Music Awards took a big hit in the ratings vs. last year’s telecast, falling by more than a third (2.3 in adults 18-49 vs. 3.6 in 2015). It was a generally low-rated night all around on broadcast, with most shows not moving much from last week’s Easter-induced soft numbers.
ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” (1.1), “The Family” (0.7) and “Quantico” (1.0) all managed to rise a tenth of a point vs. last week, but they were the only shows that did so. “Little Big Shots” dipped a tenth to 1.8 for NBC, while “The Carmichael Show” (1.0) and “Crowded” (0.8) were even with last week.
“The Simpsons” had a season-low 1.0 for FOX, and in the 7 o’clock hour both “Bordertown” and “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” had cover-your-eyes 0.4s.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||2.0/6||1.1/4||1.0/3||0.8/3|
|Total Viewers (millions)||10.73||6.17||3.88||1.76|
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.
