Live+3 Ratings for Week of May 20: ABC’s ‘Live in Front of a Studio Audience’ Still on Top

After easily topping the Live+Same Day ratings on the night it aired, the ABC special “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” has continued its success in delayed viewing.

The show grew by 24% in delayed, hopping from a 1.7 to a 2.1 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. Its next closest challengers for the week of May 20 were “The Bachelorette” and “NCIS,” which saw identical 42% bumps from 1.2 to 1.7 ratings in Live+3.

The special saw celebrities like Anthony Anderson, Kerry Washington, Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei reenacting classic episodes of sitcoms “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons.”

In terms of total viewership however, Jimmy Kimmel, Norman Lear and co. lost out to “NCIS” in live viewing and failed to overtake the CBS juggernaut in delayed. The ABC offering went from 10.4 million total viewers to 12.5 in delayed, while “NCIS” jumped from just under 12 million to just under 15 million total viewers.
