Ratings: Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” Falls Sharply This Week

Facing competition from the NFL Draft and perhaps losing some of its luster, Thursday’s “Lip Sync Battle” suffered sizable week-over-week losses in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

This week’s edition of the Spike series drew a 0.59 adults 18-49 rating with 1.266 million viewers. Both numbers were down markedly from those of the previous episode, which drew a 0.81 with 1.509 million.

While “Lip Sync Battle” has slipped each week, this week’s adults 18-49 and total viewership declines were the sharpest yet.

Morning show personalities Hoda Kotb and Michael Strahan competed on this week’s episode.

Airing on ESPN and NFL Network, the aforementioned NFL Draft averaged a combined 3.90 with 8.842 million viewers from 8-11:30PM.
