Thursday’s edition of “Lip Sync Battle,” which featured LaVar vs. Lonzo Ball, tied last week’s series low in overall viewership.

It did, however, enjoy a slight gain in the adults 18-49 demographic.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Thursday’s “Lip Sync Battle” drew a 0.21 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 440,000 overall viewers.

Last week’s Tara Lipinski vs. Johnny Weir episode drew a 0.19 in the demo but the same 440,000 in viewership.

As noted, that 440,000 viewer mark represents a series low.

Like last week’s episode, this week’s “Lip Sync Battle” faced competition from NBC’s Winter Olympics coverage. This Thursday’s Olympics broadcast did, for what it’s worth, draw a slightly larger audience than last week’s airing.
