Sunday Ratings: A Desperate ABC Wins

Okay - let’s try this again. After a week full of Nielsen ratings delays, we’re getting back to business. Thanks to a slate full of finales, CBS had a hold on the viewers last night. ABC, in the meantime, won the oh-so-important demos. (It should be noted though that both networks were beat in the 10:00 hour by NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice.)

Sunday Ratings: Weekend Win for ABC

If it hadn’t been the first official Sunday of sweeps, last night would have been considered a fairly uneventful. ABC’s lineup took the oh-so-important demos while CBS won a narrow contest with the viewers.

Earlier coverage of The Masters golf tournament (and its convenient overrun) lifted CBS to a victory on an otherwise slow Easter Sunday.

Sunday Ratings: Family Guy Beams Up the Numbers

FOX might not have been last night’s winning network (that title belongs to CBS), but it wasn’t due to lack of trying. Yesterday’s Family Guy episode drew a fair number of Trekkies and the best demos of the evening.

Star Trek: The Next Generation on Family Guy8pm

  • 60 Minutes/The Amazing Race combined efforts for 13 million (3.8/10 in 18-49).
  • (10.8 million, 3.6/9) was up 1 million.

Sunday Ratings: Weekend Ends with a CBS Win

Couple a basketball tournament overrun with a President Obama interview and what do you get? A nice way to start the evening for CBS. Despite hot competition from Desperate Housewives, the Eye network won both the viewers and the demos last night.

Sunday Ratings: Kings is No Ratings Ruler

One of these evenings NBC will get it right. Just days after witnessing a painful debut by The Chopping Block, the network did it again. Yesterday’s premiere of Kings failed to deliver any power to the Sunday night lineup. CBS wound up winning the viewers while ABC topped the demos.

Sunday Ratings: Celebrity Apprentice Pales Against Housewives

Looks like the economy isn’t the only thing Donald Trump should be worrying about. Despite a solid debut, The Celebrity Apprentice was served a cold dose of reality this week. When pitted against Sunday night regulars (Desperate Housewives, Cold Case), the reality hit showed signs of weakening. NBC’s performance helped CBS win the viewers while ABC took the demos.
