FOX led Sunday’s ratings with its broadcast of the Miss Universe pageant, which was pretty well in line with its last outing in December 2015. The three-hour show averaged a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.21 million viewers vs. 1.6 and 5.62 million for the previous one.
ABC got a season-high 1.2 from “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” and “To Tell the Truth” (1.0 for each hour) was in line with its last new episodes two weeks ago. “Conviction” finished its season with a 0.5, up slightly from its last episode.
CBS’ dramas all rebounded from their season lows two weeks ago opposite an NFL playoff game. “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.3) improved by three tenths of a point, while “Madam Secretary” (0.9) and “Elementary” (0.7) each rose two tenths.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.5/5||1.0/4||1.0/4||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.
