Ratings: ABC’s “Quantico” Falls, Ties Live+Same-Day Low

Off for last week’s American Music Awards ceremony, ABC’s “Quantico” returned with an original installment this Sunday.

It suffered episode-to-episode losses in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Per Nielsen fast national data, Sunday’s “Quantico” drew a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and 4.065 million total viewers. The numbers trail the 1.3 rating and 4.203 million viewership mark posted by the previous episode.

The adults 18-49 rating, moreover, ties a series low.

While “Quantico” has settled into underwhelming live+same-day ratings territory, it consistently receives a significant boost from time-shifted viewing. A recent episode received network television’s greatest live+7 percentage increases in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

— ABC’s Sunday lineup also included “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.0, 5.286 million), “Once Upon A Time” (1.3, 4.317 million), and “Blood & Oil” (0.9, 3.183 million).
