Ratings: Pan Am Flies Lower, 60 Minutes Surges

ABC’s Pan Am didn’t fly quite as high in its second outing. With 7.8 million total viewers and a 2.5 demo rating, the freshman drama this Sunday was down 30 and 19 percent, respectively. Not helping the show’s cause was lead-in Desperate Housewives (9 mil/2.9), which dipped 9 percent from its premiere.

60 Minutes, meanwhile, clocked in with a huge bump. Based on very preliminary data sure to be tweaked once football overrun is accounted for, the CBS newsmag surged 50 percent in the demo (hitting a 3.5) for Andy Rooney’s swan song.

A few other quick notes, until firmer numbers trickle in:

* NBC Sunday Night Football again dominated the evening, with 17.7 million viewers and a 7.3 demo rating.

* Family Guy (6.9 mil/3.5) was the top-rated scripted entertainment program. Among Fox’s other animated fare, The Simpsons (6.12 mil/3.0) dropped 23 percent from its opener.

* Both The Good Wife (with a 2.1 rating) and CSI: Miami (2.3) appear to have landed in the general neighborhood of their week-ago premieres.
