LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Overall viewership for the American Music Awards ticked up slightly on Sunday night, with the broadcast garnering a total of 6.7 million total viewers over the course of the awards presentation.
Sundays totals were a slight improvement from 2018 when 6.6 million fans tuned in but down substantially from 2017 when the broadcast drew more than 9 million viewers.
According to ABC, the broadcast stood as Sunday’s No. 1 entertainment program in both total viewers and the key metric of adults 18-49 and the strongest Sunday night performer for entertainment programming since the Oscars in February.
The 2029 AMAs gained traction on social media as well, and ABC reported more than 23.8 million total social interactions across Instagram (75%), Twitter (22%) and Facebook (3%) – more than quadruple the 2018 telecast (5.5 million).
The biggest rival for the AMAs on Sunday night was NBC’s presentation of “Sunday Night Football” with the broadcaster reporting that the match between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers averaged 15 million total for the broadcast.
