Thursday’s edition of “Lip Sync Battle,” which featured Pentatonix, enjoyed a slight week-over-week gain in adults 18-49.

It nonetheless suffered a slight loss in overall viewership.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, this week’s episode drew a 0.21 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 482,000 overall viewers.

Featuring Luis Fonsi vs. Joan Smalls, last week’s episode garnered a 0.20 in the demo but 494,000 in overall viewership.

With the exception of the Kathy Bates vs. Tone Bell episode (0.27 rating, 634,000 viewers), all February and March “Lip Sync Battle” episodes have posted similar ratings.

The one-time hit has clearly lost its spark from a live+same-day ratings standpoint, although its numbers are still decent by modern cable standards.
