Ratings: Academy of Country Music Awards Slip Further From Rough 2016 Show

After another rerun, “The Last Man on Earth” at 9:30 closed Fox’s primetime to a 0.8/2 and 1.7 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and third in viewers with 2.9 million. After a repeat, “Once Upon a Time” at 8 had a 0.8/3 and 2.8 million viewers. At 9, “Match Game” got a 0.6/2 and 2.5 million viewers. “American Crime” at 10 settled for a 0.4/1 and 1.7 million viewers.
