TV Ratings: BET Awards Scores 3.7 Million Viewers Across Multiple Networks

The BET Awards received a healthy audience boost this year thanks to a first ever simulcast on CBS.
A "Titan Games" replay scored a 0.2 and 1.3 million viewers in the 9 p.m. time slot, followed by an "America's Got Talent" rerun with a 0.4 and 2.3 million viewers at 10 p.m. Over on NBC, "Hollywood Game Night" with Jane Lynch delivered a 0.2 rating and 1.8 million viewers, pretty much even on last Sunday's episode.
"Bob's Burgers" and "Family Guy" both came in at a 0.3, with the latter pushing 1 million total viewers. Fox aired replays of its Animation Domination Sunday lineup, with "The Simpsons" and "Bless the Harts" both scoring a 0.2 rating and average of 700,000 viewers between them.
ABC technically topped the big four on the night, with "Celebrity Family Feud" leading that way at a 0.7 rating and 5.5 million total viewers. Follow game shows "Press Your Luck" and "Match Game" followed that up with a 0.6 and a 0.5. All three ticked down by a 0.1 ratings point week-to-week. The former drew 3.8 million viewers, the latter 3.5 million.
For comparison, last year's awards delivered almost exactly the same number of viewers for its multi-network simulcast. The awards show's 2020 telecast, which was hosted by Amanda Seales and featured appearances from an impressive array of talent (including Beyonce), amassed 3.7 million total viewers across BET, BET Her and CBS. CBS contributed just under 2 million of those viewers this time around, with 1.6 million tuning in on BET.

Right before the awards, an edition of "60 Minutes" scored a 0.7 rating and 7.7 million viewers, the largest audience of the night across broadcast.
The CW aired replays of "Stargirl" and "Penn & Teller: Fool Us," both of which scored a 0.1 rating. The former drew 409,000 viewers, the latter 439,000.” />
