Tuesday Final Nationals: Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Loses Half its Year-Ago Audience in FS1 Debut

CBS was Tuesday night’s most-watched network with an average of 12.08 million viewers. NBC was the night’s young-adult demo leader: adults 18-49 (1.8 rating/7 share) and adults 18-34 (1.0/5).

CBS and NBC each earned a 2.3 adults 25-54 rating but NBC had the slight edge over CBS in adults 25-54 share (7.1 vs. 6.9).

This is the first year the “Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show” was televised on FS1 after 33 years of coverage on USA Network. The move to its new outlet came at a cost to its ratings, especially for the event’s final night. Compared to Feb. 16, 2016 on USA, it experienced a decline of -52 percent in total viewers (1.31 million vs. 2.684 million), -58 percent in household rating (0.77 vs. 1.85), and -53 percent in adults 18-49 rating (0.23 vs. 0.49). As a positive, the event provided an enormous boost to the prime time ratings of the young cable sports network.
