The first Sunday of the May sweep was a quiet one, with most series staying within a tenth of a demo rating of their most recent originals. ABC’s Once Upon A Time (2.9/8 in adults 18-49) was even with its fast national from last week, down a tenth from the final, to rank as the No.1 program of the night among adults 18-49. Desperate Housewives (2.5/6) was down a tenth from its last new episode four weeks ago as the veteran dramedy returns for its final four episodes. GCB (1.9/5) was up 27% from its last original, which followed the low-rated Titanic mini-series and flat with its last outing after a new Desperate Housewives. ABC won the night in 18-49.

Joe Millionaire FoxIt was a very slow Sunday night, with only three series cracking the 2 rating among adults 18-49. Leading the pack was the return of ABC’s Once Upon A Time (2.9/8), which was up two tenths from its last original three weeks ago. But ABC didn’t keep the momentum with another tepid performance for a Hallmark Hall Of Fame movie, Firelight (1.6/4), which was up a tenth from the last Hallmark movie on the network, A Smile As Big As The Moon. CBS’ The Amazing Race (2.5/7, 9.1 million total viewers) was flat with its fast national from last week, down a tenth from the final. The Good Wife (1.8/5, 10.3 million) was steady and ranked as the second-most-watched program of the night behind 60 Minutes, while NYC 22 (1.4/4, 7.5 million) was down only a tenth from its soft premiere last week as it seems to settle into A Gifted Man‘s pattern of a stable but low-rated freshman run. CBS (1.9/5, 9.9 million) and ABC (1.9/5, 7.5 million) finished the night tied in 18-49, with CBS winning outright in total viewers. Read More »
