Golfer Gary Woodland posted a rare win on Father’s Day, and so did Fox. Sunday’s U.S. Open conclusion easily defeated ABC, CBS and the all-rerun NBC last night.
Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national ratings for Fox are subject to significant adjustment. Per the earlier-available metered market ratings, Sunday’s coverage marked the top-rated final U.S. Open round in six years.
Fox was first in ratings with a 1.4 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. That was the golf’s numbers.
ABC was second in ratings with a 0.6/3 and third in viewers with 3.6 million. Following a rerun, a “20/20” at 8 p.m. had a 0.6/3 and 3.9 million viewers. “The $100,000 Pyramid” at 9 got a 0.6/3 and 3.4 million viewers. At 10, “To Tell the Truth” received a 0.6/3 and 3.5 million viewers.
CBS and NBC tied for third in ratings, both with a 0.4/2. CBS was second in total viewers with 4.5 million, NBC was fourth with 2.5 million.
For CBS, “60 Minutes at 7 had a 0.5/3 and 6.1 million viewers. A second hour at 8 got a 0.4/2 and 4.7 million viewers.
