The Billboard Music Awards, which saw several artists push gun control following the deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School, suffered another ratings loss.
While the Sunday awards show topped NBC offerings with a 2.1/8 rating, it still suffered a 9 percent loss over last year’s showing on ABC.
The annual music award celebration faced heavy competition on Sunday night with the NBA playoff game on TNT, which earned a 5.8 rating in metered markets as the Warriors trounced the Rockets putting Steph Curry and company ahead 2-1 in the series.
Game 3 of the series was up 26 percent over last year’s comparable playoff game.
CBS’ 10 PM offering, the political drama Madame Secretary, remained flat over last week with a .6/3 rating, though its finale lost over last year’s numbers.
