By Chris Ariens 

Robin Roberts‘ pre-CMA Awards special, which aired Monday night on ABC, drew an audience of 5.16 million viewers in a virtual 3-way tie with CBS’s Scorpion (5.18 million) and NBC’s Brave (5.18 million).

This was Roberts’ ninth annual pre-CMA Awards Special which featured a look at the life and career of country music superstar Luke Bryan.

The CMA Special, Living Every Day: Luke Bryan, drew its largest overall audience in 3 years, since the Nov. 3, 2014 edition. It came in first among the key women demos (W18-49 and W25-54).

The 51st annual CMA Awards airs tonight on ABC.
