Facing considerably more modest football competition than in 2014, The American Music Awards put up a steady showing on Sunday — easily giving ABC the best non-NFL showing of the night.
Preliminary returns give the three-hour music kudos a 3.5 rating among adults 18-49 and just a hair shy of 11 million viewers. According to THR, that's mostly in line with 2014, which brought a 3.8 rating in the key demo and 11.6 million viewers with final adjustments.
Compared to last week's Sunday Night Football, NBC's Bengals-Cardinals match-up was off 14 percent from last week's preliminary score for a tentative 5.6 rating in the key demo.
