TV Ratings: BET Awards Get a Boost From CBS


CBS' first-ever simulcast of the BET Awards didn't bring in a huge audience, but it's likely to help the telecast pretty well match last year's performance. ABC's game shows, meanwhile, snagged the top spot among adults 18-49 on Sunday. 

The three-hour BET awards telecast, which also aired on BET and BET Her, averaged about 1.9 million viewers on CBS and 1.6 million on BET. Across all three channels, the awards clocked in at 3.7 million viewers, on par with the 3.79 million who watched on eight Viacom channels in 2019 (BET and CBS are now both part of the combined ViacomCBS). 

The 1.9 million viewers on CBS is not a big number for the broadcast network, but it made up more than half of the show's total audience. Sunday's show drew a combined 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. The 2019 awards drew 2.43 million viewers on BET and 3.79 million for its multi-network simulcast, along with a 1.5 rating across all eight channels.
