Ratings: Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” Improves for Merchant vs. Akerman

While it did not bounce back to its initial levels, Thursday’s edition of “Lip Sync Battle” did outperform last week’s episode.

After slipping to a series low 0.59 adults 18-49 rating with 1.266 million viewers last week, the Spike series this week enjoyed a 0.66 rating with 1.300 million viewers.

Sans competition from the NFL Draft or the NBA Playoffs, “Lip Sync Battle” ranked as Thursday’s top-rated cable original in adults 18-49.

Stephen Merchant and Malin Akerman competed in this week’s episode.
