ABC’s broadcast of the annual “CMA Fest” grabbed a 0.9 average across its 3-hour-long run time as well, down three-tenths from the 1.2 that it had scored last year. “CMA Fest” did, however, give “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” a bit of a bump in the late-night ratings (see below).
Elsewhere, NBC’s “World of Dance” continued to hold steady in its new Wednesday night time slot, maintaining a 1.1 rating for the second week in a row. The first season finale of “Reverie” (0.4) rounded out the night for the network, even with past few episodes and its season average.
After experiencing a small dip last week, FOX’s “MasterChef” was back up a tenth to a 1.0 this time around. “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back” followed it up, returning from a week off, steady with another 0.9.
On the CW, “Burden of Truth” slipped with its third episode, falling one-tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.1.

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.
