The 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards were largely even with their showing last year.

Combined ratings from TNT and TBS, which simulcast Sunday's two-hour event, give the show a total audience of just over 5.1 million viewers. That's a 2 percent bump over 2011, which saw and audience of 5 million. TNT had the edge among the two nets, carrying 2.7 million of the viewers, with 2.3 million watching on TBS.

In the demos, gains cooled among adults 18-49. After a 13 percent jump in the group last year, the showing went down from 2.2 million to 2 million. The combined broadcasts took 1 million among adults 18-34, also down, while the 25-54 group saw gains from 2.2 to 2.3 million.

Elsewhere in SAG-related ratings, the E! Live from the Red Carpet coverage ahead of the show delivered a 22 percent gain year-over-year. The network's broadcast, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET, was watched by a record 1.5 million viewers.
