In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s American Idol led Sunday in the demo, while CBS’ 60 Minutes clocked in with the night’s biggest audience.
CBS | Leading out of 60 Minutes (which drew 6.7 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating) — and pending possible adjustment due to a sliiiightly delayed start — The Equalizer (5.2 mil/0.4), East New York (4.7 mil/0.3) and NCIS: Los Angeles (4.2 mil/0.3) were all down a tenth in the demo, though East New York is looking at its best total audience since Jan. 15.
NBC | Leading out of Dateline rerun, Magnum P.I. (3.5 mil/0.2) and The Blacklist (1.7 mil/0.1) both dipped to new demo lows.
ABC | AFV (4.9 mil/0.6) and Idol (5.4 mil/0.7, read recap) were both steady, while The Company You Keep (2.2 mil/0.2) dipped.
FOX | The Simpsons (940K/0.2), The Great North (670K/0.2), Robert’s Hamburgers (760K/0.2) and He’s the Family Guy! (840K/0.3) each dropped some eyeballs.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
