LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- About 5.2 million U.S. viewers tuned in to Sunday's simulcast of the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on TNT and TBS, the sister networks said.

The awards show's strong performance comes as TNT and TBS announced a new three-year deal with SAG-AFTRA to continue airing the SAG Awards.

"The SAG Awards are a perfect fit for TBS and TNT, giving us the opportunity each year to target comedy and drama fans with a star-studded night celebrating the best in television and movie acting," Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, said in a statement Monday. "We are thrilled that TNT and TBS will continue to be home of one of the awards season's premier events."

"We are pleased to once again partner with TNT and TBS on the simulcast of the Screen Actors Guild Awards," said SAG-AFTRA National Executive Director David White. "Their support over the last 16 years has contributed to the tremendous popularity of our celebration of acting excellence. TNT and TBS' recognition of the SAG Awards' unique place in the industry and its wide appeal to the global home audience has helped make it one of the most important events of the awards season."
