ABC Wins Sunday Ratings With Nik Wallenda’s Live Highwire Act In Times Square

ABC easily won Sunday night — all without a net! Highwire Live in Time Square with Nik Wallenda had audiences sitting at the edge of their seat as they watched circus troupe members Nik Wallenda and Lijana Wallenda walk the highwire 25 stories above street level across New York City’s Time Square. The two-hour special averaged 5.3 million viewers and a 0.8, which topped Sunday evening ratings. Highwire Live was sandwiched between reruns America’s Funniest Home Videos and the networks new mini-golf competition series Holey Moley, which also fueled ABC’s Sunday night win.

NBC came in second for the evening with reruns of America’s Got Talent, New Amsterdam and Hollywood Game Night. Elsewhere, the action held pretty steadily with CBS airing episodes 3 and 4 from the first season of CBS All Access’ The Good Fight (3.7 million/0.3, 3.6 million/0.3). This was pretty much on par with last week’s episodes 1 and 2 which each took in about 3.57 million viewers.

On the CW, The Burden of Truth held steady with 471,000/0.1, which nearly matched last week while Fox came in swinging with FOX PBC Fight Night with 1.1 million viewers.
