Ratings: Once, Housewives and Pan Am Hit Series Lows, Fox 'Toons Rebound

‘Twas a cloudy Sunday for ABC this week, as all three of its dramas hit all-time lows in the coveted 18-49 demo.

Leading off the night, Once Upon a Time dipped 9 percent to deliver 9.6 million viewers while scoring a 3.1 demo rating. Desperate Housewives (8.1 mil/2.6) followed with drops of 13 percent, and then Pan Am (4.7 mil/1.6) descended double digits as well.

The news was far sunnier over at Fox, which thanks to a robust football lead-in saw all of its animated entries surge. The Simpsons (9 mil/4.0) topped all scripted series in the demo as it matched its season high, while drawing its largest audience since January. Allen Gregory (5.2 mil/2.4) in turn was up 60 percent, Family Guy (7.1 mil/3.5) gained 25 percent, and The Cleveland Show (5.4 mil/2.5) improved on American Dad by double digits.

NBC Sunday Night Football of course dominated the night, though the Saints-Lions overnight rating is the franchise’s lowest since the Oct. 23 Saints-Colts blowout.

Lastly, on CBS: The Amazing Race (9.6 mil/2.7) was down a few percentage points yet matched Once‘s audience this week; The Good Wife (9.8 mil/1.9) was rock-steady; and CSI: Miami was Sunday’s most-watched scripted show with 10.4 million viewers (while netting a 2.2 rating). Due to marginal NFL overrun, the CBS tallies could change slightly.
