‘American Country Countdown Awards’ Ratings Bested by ‘The Voice’

american-country-countdown-awards1111featuredAccording to Zap2It.com, the American Country Countdown Awards’ inaugural outing last night, Monday, Dec. 15, on Fox wasn’t enough to best competitors.

In the 8 p.m. ET time slot, the American Country Countdown Awards came in behind offerings from the other major networks, including the first night of the season finale of NBC’s The Voice (12.17 million viewers), CBS’ Two Broke Girls (7.83 million viewers), and ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight (6 million viewers). The American Country Countdown Awards brought in 3.39 million viewers, and a 18-49 rating of .9. The Voice earned a 2.9 rating among viewers 18-49.

Ratings for the new awards show also fall below last year’s ratings for the now-defunct FOX vehicle, the American Country Awards. In 2013, the ACAs brought in 5.14 million viewers in the 8 p.m. ET time slot, with an 18-49 rating of 1.4.

While many of country’s biggest names were accepting awards and performing on the American Country Countdown Awards, fellow country star and The Voice coach Blake Shelton was performing with contestant Craig Wayne Boyd. The pair covered Randy Houser’s “Boots On.” Boyd, a 35-year-old frontrunner in the competition, also offered Alabama’s “In Pictures,” as well as the original song “My Baby’s Got A Smile on Her Face,” which was gifted to him by Shelton.
