Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee celebration is bowed down by the ratings – Boston News, Weather, Sports

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The US’s secession from Britain is history, but the monarchy still holds onto the heart of its former colony.

Two specials about Queen Elizabeth II and the Celebrating her 70th jubilee slumped into the top 20 best-rated prime-time programs of the past week, according to Nielsen figures on Tuesday.

ABC’s “Party at the Palace,” a star-studded concert featuring Elton John, Diana Ross, and Queen starring Adam Lambert, debuted at No. 15. The CBS News documentary “Her Majesty the Queen,” hosted by Gayle King, charted at No. 18

A skit of Queen having tea with an animated Paddington Bear mesmerized the crowd at the Platinum Jubilee pop concert outside Buckingham Palace. The pre-recorded video proved largely compelling online, too.

The first two games of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics topped the ratings, but viewers also had time for a special prime-time episode of “The Price Is Right” honoring first responders.

Fueled by basketball, ABC led the week in prime time, averaging 4.4 million viewers. CBS had 3.1 million, NBC had 2.5 million, Fox had 1.5 million, Univision had 1.3 million, Telemundo had 890,000, and Ion Television had 870,000.

ABC’s World News Tonight won the evening news competition, averaging 7.2 million viewers. NBC’s Nightly News had 6.1 million and CBS Evening News had 4.3 million.
