BET gospel music competition series Sunday Best set a series ratings record during its Sunday night finale.
The season five finale delivered 2.6 million viewers, posting double-digit increases over the previous four Sunday Best season finales, including a 10% lift over last year's season-ending episode, according to network officials.
Season five of Sunday Best also ranks as the highest-rated season for the gospel series franchise, up 3% compared to season four, and remains the top-rated gospel series on television, said the network.
South Carolina native Joshua Rogers won the Sunday Best title during the season finale, and will receive a national recording contract with Music World Gospel, a cash prize, and an exclusive prize from Ford, said BET.
