The American Music Awards took a pretty big ratings hit Sunday, falling considerably from the show’s 2015 rating and hitting an all-time low in adults 18-49.
ABC’s broadcast of the AMAs drew a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49, down 31 percent from last year’s 3.5. It’s the lowest 18-49 rating on record for the awards, whose previous low point was a 3.4 in 2012.
“Sunday Night Football” was also down for NBC, drawing a preliminary 5.6. It will adjust up in the finals, but the early rating is 0.9 below last week’s 6.5. “The Simpsons” (1.3) was off 0.1 from its last episode without a national NFL lead-in, while “Family Guy” (1.2) and “The Last Man on Earth” (0.9) were even. A pair of “Bob’s Burgers” episodes drew 1.0 and 1.2 at 7:30 and 8:30.
CBS’ numbers are subject to change as the network’s primetime schedule started at 7:46 p.m., but “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Madam Secretary” and “Elementary” are all likely to be within their normal range.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.7/14||2.2/7||2.1/6||1.1/4|
|Total Viewers (millions)||14.42||12.11||7.82||2.54|
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.
