July 4th was a quiet night on broadcast, with two networks airing original programming on Monday night.
NBC’s telecast of the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks topped the night, averaging 8.6 million total viewers at 9 p.m. and a 2.1 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, up 50 percent from last year’s special.
Even with the network winning the holiday, the ratings dipped expectedly for the 10 p.m. hour when NBC reran the special (5.3 million, 1.4).
CBS’ Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular (6.6 million, 1.1) with Michael Chiklis rose 22 percent from the previous year and dominated NBC’s telecast at 10 p.m. in total viewers.
At 8 p.m., a repeat of America’s Got Talent (4.9 million, 1.2) won both viewers and the demo.
