NBC’s annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade broadcast on NBC drew 22.1 million total viewers on Thursday.

That’s down from last year’s audience of 23.7 million, a decline of just under 7%, according to The Wrap citing Nielsen data.

Among adults 18-49, the parade drew a 5.49 rating, making it the highest-rated entertainment program since the Oscars back in February. Year-over-year, the parade is down 8% in the demo, with the 2018 parade scoring a 5.98 rating.

As it did last year, the 2019 “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade” broadcast came in as the third most-watched entertainment program of 2019 so far, behind only the Oscars and the post-Super Bowl episode of CBS’s “World’s Best.” (In 2018, the #2 program was the post-Super Bowl episode of “This Is Us.”)

Following the parade, NBC’s telecast of “The National Dog Show” drew 11.4 million total viewers, marking a 2% growth over last year’s 11.2 million. The dog show also came in up 4% in the demo, with a 2.80 rating vs. last year’s 2.70.
