Ratings: On a Steady Sunday, Housewives, Pan Am and CSI: Miami Post Gains

On a Sunday night where most every show was exactly at or a hair below its week-prior demo rating, ABC’s Desperate Housewives and Pan Am and CBS’ CSI: Miami posted the biggest percent gains.

Leading out of the rock-steady Once Upon a Time (11.33 mil/3.8), which again topped all of Sunday’s scripted fare in the 18-49 demo, Housewives drew 9.22 million total viewers and a 3.0 rating, up 5 and 7 percent, respectively.

Bubble show Pan Am then retained 5.7 mil and 1.8 of that, up 10 and 6 percent and enjoying its largest audience in three weeks.

Opposite Pan Am, CSI: Miami copped 9.8 million viewers and a 2.1 rating, surging 13 and 11 percent.

Of course the night’s biggest draw was NBC’s broadcast of the Patriots-Jets game, which is on pace to be up 2 percent from the previous Sunday Night Football match-up.


8 pm | Trailing football and Once, The Amazing Race (10.6 mil/2.7) was up 9 percent in total audience. Both The Simpsons (7.53 mil/3.5) and Allen Gregory (4.24 mil/2.0) were down a few percentage points.

9 pm | The Good Wife (10.1 mil/2.0) was flat in the demo but surged 11 percent in total viewers, besting Housewives. Both Family Guy (6 mil/3.1) and American Dad (4.9 mil/2.4) were flat.
