ABC’s broadcast of the American Music Awards was down a bit compared to last year’s show, falling three tenths in adults 18-49 (3.5 vs. 3.8 in 2014). It was nonetheless ABC’s best Sunday performance of the season by a wide margin.
FOX, which had the late-afternoon NFL games, saw all of its shows rise vs. their last original episodes, with “The Simpsons” (2.3, +0.8) getting the biggest bounce. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (+0.4) and “Family Guy” (+0.2) also rose by multiple tenths, while “The Last Man on Earth” grew 0.1 vs. last week.
The news was not as good at CBS, where both “The Good Wife” (0.9) and “CSI: Cyber” (0.9) failed to crack the 1.0 mark, although “Cyber” was at least up a tenth vs. last week’s barely-in-primetime episode.
“Sunday Night Football” also had an off week. Pending updates, it stands at a 5.6, down from last week’s preliminary 6.5.

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.
