Ratings: Revenge Rebounds, Good Wife Dips to New Low, Amazing Race Slows But Tops Night

CHRISTA B. ALLEN, JOSH BOWMANOn a holiday weekend Sunday when TV usage was down 6 percent overall, both of ABC’s drama offerings rebounded from series lows.

Once Upon a Time‘s trip to “Manhattan” took along 7.5 million total passengers while netting a 2.3 demo rating, up 6 percent and a tenth from last week’s nadir. Likewise, Revenge (with 6 mil and a 1.8) surged 15 and 29 percent.

Capping ABC’s night, an encore of the Zero Hour premiere added 3.1 mil and a 0.9.

Over on CBS, the 22nd running of The Amazing Race opened to 9.5 mil and a 2.4 — winning or tying for the Sunday lead on both counts, yet dipping to all-time lows for a season premiere. The Good Wife, while excellent, nonetheless dipped 9 percent and a tenth to 8.5 mil and a series-low 1.4, while The Mentalist fell 13 and 21 percent to 9.2 mil/1.5. (CBS’ numbers are subject to adjustment due to ever-so-slightly delayed start times.)
