This week’s episode drew a 1.00 adults 18-49 rating with 1.91 million viewers. Both numbers were up significantly from those of last week’s broadcast, which drew a 0.65 rating with 1.35 million viewers.

“Lip Sync Battle,” which resumes its first season in July, has been picked up for a twenty episode second season.
