Ratings: Killing Holds Steady, CBS Tops Sunday

Week 2 of AMC’s gripping The Killing delivered 2.6 million total viewers on Sunday night, representing a dip of just 4 percent from its two-hour premiere.

Starz’s Camelot, however, did not hold up as well in its second outing, dropping 23 percent in audience to 850,000 viewers, says EW.com. That is said to still be a solid number for Starz, however.

Turning to cable finales, Syfy’s Merlin wrapped its third season with an all-time high audience of 1.89 million viewers.

Other recent ratings bits:

* Boosted by a bit of Masters golf overrun, CBS topped Sunday night in average viewers and the demos. Fox’s Family Guy, though, enjoyed the best demos for any Sunday show, scoring a 3.3 rating with the coveted 18-49 crowd.

* The Celebrity Apprentice averaged 8.1 million viewers and a 3.0 rating, dipping just 5 percent week-to-week.

* ABC’s Secret Millionaire closed its season with an audience of 9.14 million viewers and a series-low 2.3 rating. A double-batch of Brothers & Sisters then went on to average just 6.5 million viewers and a 1.8 rating (down 14 percent from its last fresh 0uting). Me, I sense a rough road to renewal.
