Ratings Breakdown:
“The 2016 American Music Awards” lost noticeable steam, with a 5.4 rating/8 share in the household overnights last night down by 28 percent from the 7.5/12 on the year-ago evening. That 7.5 rating in the overnights translated into 11.01 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/11 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” at a 3.8/ 7 (#2) in the 7 p.m. hour.

Tops for the night was the Green Bay Packers at the Washington Redskins on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” at a 11.9/19 in the household overnights from 8:30-11:45 p.m.

Elsewhere, CBS got a significant lift for the evening with a 14.6/24 in the 7 p.m. half-hour for an NFL football overrun. That led into an 11.5/18 for granddaddy “60 Minutes” from 7:30-8:30 p.m., followed by “NCIS” (#2: 7.7/12 from 8:30-9:30 p.m.), “Madam Secretary” (#2: 6.4/10 from 9:30-10:30 p.m.) and the first half of “Elementary” (#2t: 4.7/ 8 at 10:30 p.m.). Individual program results for CBS are approximate due to the football overrun.

Fox, meanwhile, could not compete with its line-up of a repeat of “The Simpsons” (2.2/ 4), “Bob’s Burgers” (1.5/ 2), the regular installment of “The Simpsons” (1.8/ 3), “Son of Zorn” (1.8/ 3) and “The Last Man on Earth” (1.3/ 2). The network finished a distant fourth in each of the six half-hours.
