NBC was the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice (1.7/4) network last night. New and encore episodes of the Donald Trump-hosted reality series made up the network’s entire Sunday night. The two-hour second episode, which saw the distinctly not A-listers head to Universal Studios Orlando, was flat with the final numbers of last week’s lowest-ever season premiere. NBC started the night with a repeat (0.8/2) of last week’s two-hour All-Star Celebrity Apprentice season premiere.
Another series’ second week was not as merciful. The one-hour second week of ABC’s Red Widow (1.2/3) saw the highly promoted family mob drama perilously fall 20% from its two-hour March 3 premiere. America’s Funniest Home Videos (1.4/4) started off the night for ABC, tumbling 18% from last week. While it didn’t fall, last night didn’t bring any good news for Once Upon A Time (2.2/6). Flat with last week’s show, the fantasy drama was tied for a series low. Back after three weeks, Revenge (2.0/5) rose 11% from its last original.
On CBS, 60 Minutes (1.6/5) was flat with its March 3 airing, while The Amazing Race (2.3/7) slipped 8% from last week; 60 Minutes was the most watched show of the night with an audience of 11.35 million. After last week’s 23% rise from its previous airing, The Good Wife (1.5/4) dipped 6% from its March 3 show. At 10 PM, The Mentalist (1.6/7) bopped up 7% from last week’s show.
Fox kicked off its Sunday animation block with a repeat of Bob’s Burgers (0.9/3). That was followed by a new American Dad (1.6/5), which was down 16% from its last original February 16, which aired at 9:30 PM not 7:30 PM. The Simpsons (2.2/6) and The Cleveland Show (1.8/5) were both even with last week. A new Family Guy (2.6/7) was up 8% from its last original February 17. The Seth MacFarlane-produced show was the night’s highest-rated program in the key 18-49 demo. A new Bob’s Burgers (1.8/4) closed out the night, up 6% from last week.
With 9.770 million watching on the first Sunday of Daylight Savings, CBS won the night in total viewers and tied with Fox for the top spot in adults 18-49.
