ABC’s Sunday dramas all suffered slippage this week, though by exactly how much remains to be seen.
But as it stands now — pending Nielsen’s release of “restated” (AKA corrected) Week 2 demo numbers — Once Upon a Time (7.7 mil/2.6) is down 16 and 21 percent, Resurrection (5.5 mil/1.4) fell 18 and 30 percent (opposite The Walking Dead‘s season opener) and Revenge (4.6 mil/1.2) slipped 13 and 14 percent.
*Nielsen thus far has only released ABC’s adjusted, glitch-free demo numbers for Premiere Week, adjusting Once down two tenths (to a 3.5) and Resurrection down one tenth (to 2.2).
Over on CBS, Madam Secretary (11.5 mil/1.5) and The Good Wife (10.3 mil/1.3) each ticked down 5 percent and a tenth, while CSI (8.9 mil/1.4) grew 10 percent and a tenth.
Boosted by football, Fox’s The Simpsons (7.3 mil/3.3) surged 70 and 65 percent, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine (4.5 mil/2.1) rose 36 and 31 percent. Leading out of a Family Guy rerun, Mulaney (2.2 mil/1.1) ticked up a tenth from its premiere.
NBC Sunday Night Football (15.6 mil/6.0) is down 14 percent from last week’s fast nationals.
As always and forever, meaningful cable ratings (e.g. the Walking Dead premiere) will be reported much later and under separate cover.
