Leading into the retro freshman drama was Desperate Housewives (8.46 mil/2.7), which was down about 10 percent to match its all-time low performance with the coveted 18-49 crowd.
Now before you go summoning the Walker family, know that Pan Am is retaining the same percentage (~70) of Housewives‘ audience and demo rating as Brothers & Sisters did a year ago; it’s just working off of a smaller lead-in.
A few other Sunday snippets:
* NBC Sunday Night Football this week tackled an audience of 19.5 million total viewers while scoring a 7.9 demo rating, up 3 percent week-to-week.
* CBS’ slate, all subject to tweaking due to 35-minute football overrun, shakes out a little something like this: 60 Minutes (13.7 mil/3.6) dropped 20 percent in audience from Andy Rooney’s well-watched swan song, but inched up in the demo. (Andy’s poker pals tuned out, maybe?) Amazing Race (9.6 mil/2.7) looks to be down double digits, while The Good Wife (9.9 mil/2.2) held steady in the demo. CSI: Miami (9.7 mil/2.0) slipped 17 percent.
