Ratings: “Lip Sync Battle” Falls For Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross Episode

While still one of cable’s top attractions Thursday night, the ‘black-ish’-themed “Lip Sync Battle” was not as potent as the previous two episodes.

Featuring ‘black-ish’ stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, Thursday’s episode of the Spike series posted a 0.67 adults 18-49 rating and reached 1.421 million total viewers.

Last week’s Kevin Hart-Olivia Munn episode drew a 1.04 rating and 2.288 million total viewers, while the previous week’s “Tatum Takeover” set series highs — and network records.

Despite the decline, Thursday’s episode was #1 in adults 18-49 among non-sports cable originals (and #3 with sports included).

“Lip Sync Battle” returns next week with a competition between Kaley Cuoco and Josh Gad.
