ABC didn’t have a *ton* of fun with its fun and games last night, but the Disney-owned broadcast network had just enough to win primetime among its English-language competition. Fox had no fun at all, especially when Fred Savage’s “What Just Happened??!” came on.
“What Just Happened??!” managed just a 0.2 rating/1 share and 640,000 total viewers. Those were both down from its already sad debut last Sunday.
This Sunday, airing just “AGT” reruns, NBC finished runner-up among the English-language nets in the key 18-49 demo. CBS was second in total viewers. Unfortunately for ABC, NBC, CBS and everyone else, Univision dominated the night in the demo with some non-World Cup soccer.
Univision was first in ratings with a 1.4 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, but third in total viewers with an average of 3.4 million, according to preliminary numbers.
ABC was second in ratings with a 0.7/4 and first in total viewers with an average of 4.5 million. Following a rerun, “Celebrity Family Feud” at 8 p.m. posted a 0.9/4 and 5.2 million viewers. “The $100,000 Pyramid” at 9 had a 0.8/4 and 4.8 million viewers. At 10, “To Tell the Truth” got a 0.7/3 and 3.7 million viewers.
NBC was third in ratings with a 0.6/3 and fourth in viewers with 3.3 million.
CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.5/3 and second in viewers with 4.3 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” received a 0.6/3 and 6.7 million viewers. “Big Brother” at 8 landed a 1.0/5 and 4.4 million viewers. “Instinct” at 9 had a 0.3/1 and 3.4 million viewers. An episode of CBS All Access series “The Good Fight” Season 1 followed.
Fox was fifth in ratings with a 0.3/1 and in viewers with 860,000. Fox aired all reruns leading in to Savage’s “What Just Happened??!”
Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 650,000.
The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.1/1 and in viewers with 566,000. “Burden of Truth” at 8 had a 0.1/0 and 486,000 viewers. Repeats followed.
(Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story had ABC finishing first in the key ratings demographic. The ratings for Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo typically arrive after the English-language ones and generally do not impact the top of the overall broadcast rankings.)
