The CMA Awards were the No. 1 entertainment show on television last week.
During the week of November 8, 2010, ABC’s broadcast of “The 44th Annual CMA Awards” emerged as TV’s No. 1 entertainment program in the key Adult 18-49 sales demographic. In fact it represented the first-time ever for ABC’s CMA Awards to stand as the highest-rated entertainment show, during the week in which it aired.
Up against highly-competitive 2010 November Sweeps programming during the week, the CMA Awards outperformed top-rated shows on the other networks, including Fox’s “Glee,” CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” and NBC’s “The Office.
An estimated 33.8 million viewers watched at least some portion of the show during its broadcast. It was the CMA Awards’ second largest audience since 2005.
