Sunday Final Nationals: Amelia Earhart Special on History Tops Prime Time Cable in Total Viewers

With an original airing of “Big Brother 19” followed by the modest premiere of game show “Candy Crush”, CBS led Sunday night in total viewers (5.39 million) and adults 18-34 outright (0.7 rating/4 share) as well as having earned the slight edge over ABC among adults 18-49 (1.0/4) and adults 25-54 (1.4/5).

With an average of 4.32 million viewers, the 123-minute History Channel special “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence” was easily cable’s most-watched telecast of the night. The program featured Shawn Henry, a former F.B.I. executive assistant director, who revealed that there are documents reportedly containing new information about the fate of the aviator Earhart, who went missing on July 2, 1937, with her navigator, Fred Noonan.
