ABC’s Dick Clark’s Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest on Sunday night drew 15.7 million total viewers and a 5.0 demo rating during the 10 o’clock hour, surging 35 and 30 percent from last year to mark the program’s best numbers in that time slot since debuting (with a Seacrestified title) in 2000.

From 8 to 10 pm, DCPNYREWRS averaged 10.5 million and a 3.1, up some 60 percent from last year and besting Fox head-to-head by 81 and 72 percent.

Ratings for ABC’s final, ball-dropping segment of the countdown programs will trickle in later this week.

Fox this year handed the reins to Steve Harvey, who from 8 to 10 pm averaged 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.8 rating. That doubled the demo delivery of Pitbull’s most recent NYE hosting (December 2015) while improving the audience by 123 percent. (Last year, Fox during primetime aired drama series repeats, which did 1.4 mil and a 0.3).
