CBS’ Madam Secretary christened its new, later time slot on Sunday with 9.4 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating (pending any NFL-delayed adjustment), down from its previous premiere (11.8 mil/1.4) but up from its May finale (10 mil/1.0) and on par with The Good Wife‘s year-ago opener in the 9 o’clock slot (9.3 mil/1.2).
Opening the Eye’s night, NCIS: LA (11.5 mil/1.5) matched its premiere. At 10 pm, Elementary returned to 6.3 mil and a 0.8, down from its previous (Thursday) opener (5.6 mil/1.1) but up versus its May finale (5.5 mil/0.7, on a Sunday).
ABC | Once Upon a Time (3.7 mil/1.1) slipped two tenths, Secrets and Lies (3.7 mil/0.9) dipped one tenth and Quantico (3.6 mil/1.0) was steady.
FOX | The Simpsons (6 mil/2.6), Son of Zorn (3.6 mil/1.6) and Family Guy (3.5 mil/1.6) all enjoyed meaty NFL boosts, while Last Man on Earth (2.5 mil/1.) ticked up one tenth.
NBC | Sunday Night Football (16.7 mil/6.1) is currently down 10 percent from last week’s fast nats.
Cable ratings (e.g. Westworld, Fear TWD finale) famously come in much, much later and as warranted are reported under separate cover.
