Trump's Miss Universe Pageant Gets Huge Ratings

By    |   Monday, 26 Jan 2015 03:50 PM

NBC’s Sunday Night broadcast of the Miss Universe pageant drew 7.6 million total viewers and a 2.0 demo rating – roughly doubling the previous ceremony, which drew 3.9 million and a 0.9 demo.

The figures for the event also marked eight and five year highs, Tvline.com reported.

While CBS had more viewers Sunday night, "NBC drew the most young adults, thanks to the pageant," the Orlando Sentinel observed.

The shift of the pageant to Sunday night "produced big ratings gains this year, as the event stood as the night's top broadcast in key demos with some of its best numbers in years," according to Variety.

Preliminary Nielson estimates show that NBC won Sunday thanks to the live, three-hour Miss Universe broadcast from Miami, which was the evening's top entertainment program among 18-49-year-olds, persons 12-34 and adults 25-54. Viewership grew every 30 minutes, peaking with a demo rating of 2.4 and 8.8 million total viewers between 10:30 and 11 P.M., Variety added.

Officials with NBC Universal noted that NBC won Sunday night among the "Big 4" (ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox) in adults 18-34, 18-49, and 25-54. Among women, it placed first among the critical 18-34, 18-49, and 25-54 age groups. Compared to last season, Miss Universe was up 102 percent in total viewers and 122 percent in the adult 18-49 rating group.

Miss Colombia Paulina Vega won the title, beating the runner-up Miss Jamaica Kaci Fennell.
