ABC’s ‘Miss America’ Takes the Entertainment Lead on Sunday from 9-11 p.m.

“The 2019 Miss America Competition” (7:00-11:00 p.m. – 4.3 million and 0.7/3 in AD18-49):  
Opposite NFL-fueled competition from the season opener of NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” (Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers) and Fox’s NFL overrun-driven lineup with the highly promoted series debut of “Rel,” ABC’s Sunday 9:00-11:00 p.m. telecast of “The 2019 Miss America Competition” built on its lead-in and grew from its first half-hour to its final half-hour in viewers. During its final half-hour from 10:30-11:00 p.m. as Miss New York, Nia Imani Franklin, was crowned, “The Miss America Competition” attracted 4.5 million viewers. ABC stood as the most-watched entertainment network in the 2-hour timeslot and also ranked No. 1 across all key Women demos (W18-34/W18-49/W25-54).
