This year’s “CMA Fest” carried ABC to another overall Sunday primetime ratings win this week.

ABC’s annual “CMA Fest” broadcast was the second-highest-rated of the night, averaging a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.69 million viewers across its 3-hour run time. Pending updates, that puts it down just a tick from the 0.9 and 4.71 million viewers that the 2018 “CMA Fest” broadcast scored.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Big Brother” remained the night’s no. 1 broadcast with a 1.1 rating – up a tenth from its 1.0 last Sunday – and 4.31 million viewers. “Instinct” (0.3) and “The Good Fight” (0.2) capped off another Sunday night for the network, steady yet again with their previous episodes.

FOX’s “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” was the night’s only other original broadcast, and it managed to stay even with the same 0.2 that it scored a week ago.

Network averages:

Definitions:
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.
