In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ 60 Minutes led Sunday in total viewers and probably also scored the demo win, leading out of late-running March Madness coverage.

Cancelled and Renewed TV Shows
Cancellation Jitters: 13 Shows in Limbo on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW

CBS | Pending adjustment due to late starts, CBS currently has 60 Minutes down for 9 million total viewers, the newsmagazine’s best prelim audience since Jan. 8. Similarly, The Equalizer is eyeing its largest audience (6.7 mil) since Oct. 23, and East New York drew its most viewers (5.1 mil) since Jan. 15. NCIS: LA (4.2 mil) also added some eyeballs. (No reportable demo numbers for CBS just yet.)

NBC | Magnum P.I. (2.6 mil/0.2) slipped in viewers for a fourth straight week, to a new low, and is currently also matching its demo low. The Blacklist (1.8 mil/0.2) was steady.

FOX | Amid a sea of reruns, Housebroken returned to 600K and a 0.2.

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.
