Ratings: Once Upon a Time Inches Up, NYC 22 Slips, Fox's 25th Bash Poorly Attended

A meager 4.3 million revelers turned out for Fox’s two-hour 25th Anniversary bash Sunday night, giving the network a rare last place finish among viewers. In the demo, the special averaged a 1.8 rating.

Encores of the Married With Children and Simpsons pilots that preceded the soiree drew roughly 3 mil and a 1.3 and 1.5 respectively.

After a three-week break, Once Upon a Time returned with 8.8 million and a 2.9 — up 5 percent and 4 percent respectively. The network’s Hallmark Hall of Fame telepic Firelight, meanwhile, drew 7.6 mil and a 1.7.

Elsewhere, it was business as usual with Harry’s Law (8.6 mil, 1.0), The Amazing Race (9.1 mil, 2.5), The Celebrity Apprentice (6.3, 2.0) and The Good Wife (10.3, 1.9) at or near recent levels.

CBS’ NYC 22 shed more than a million viewers from its premiere last week and was down a tick in the demo (7.4 mil, 1.4).
