TV Ratings: Billboard Music Awards up from 2006, CBS wins in total viewers

23 May 2011 10:23 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Fast national ratings for Sunday, May 22, 2011.

ABC won the target demo last night, on the final Sunday of the season, with the 2011 Billboard Music Awards featuring a show-stopping performance from Beyonce and, of course, that Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez kiss that has teenyboppers rending their garments across the nation. The show's ratings were up 7% from the last broadcast in 2006.

On NBC, the "Celebrity Apprentice" finale had a significant boost from last week's episode, rising over 15% in total viewers, while Fox's Animation Domination finales were lower than the last original episodes of their respective series. CBS broadcast "Jesse Stone: Innocents Lost," and though it helped to win the night for CBS in total viewership, it didn't win in the target demo.

Overall, CBS averaged 12.1 million viewers and scored a 7.8 rating/13 share in households. ABC followed with 7.4 million and a 4.3/7 share, with NBC in third (6.4 million, 4.0/6) and Fox (4.5, 2.6/4) in fourth.

2011 Billboard Music Awards Showtime! Britney, Rihanna, Nicki! Together

23 May 2011 4:13 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

The 2011 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, gave is some pretty awesome moments on air, even though the carpet fashion was lacking. We have to give props to Senor Chang Ken Jeong for having the ability to humiliate himself on stage for laughs! But everything anyone did at the show—including Beyonce performing a very sexy “Run the World (Girls)”—was overshadowed by Britney Spears. Brit-Brit had some help on stage in creating two incredibly memorable performances. The first was with Rihanna on a remix of S&M which kicked off the awards. The second was with Nicki Minaj on “Till The World Ends,” after Minaj sang “Super Bass.” Badass!

That was just the beginning. The Billboard stage saw the likes of U2, Neil Diamond, Mary J. Blige and cutie Justin Bieber (in a very Vegas-esque golden tux) come on. Bono »
