In the latest TV ratings, CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles delivered its largest overnight audience since Oct. 21 (5.5 million total viewers) while rising two tenths in the demo to match its best rating (0.6) since its season opener and tie for this Sunday’s crown.
Opening the Eye’s night, 60 Minutes delivered Sunday’s biggest audience (6.7 mil), while The Equalizer (6.3 mil/0.5) was pretty steady. Come 10 pm, S.W.A.T. (3.9 mil/0.5) was up a tenth in the demo.
Over on ABC and leading out of AFV (4.6 mil/0.6, up a tenth), a three-hour American Idol averaged 5 mil and a 0.6, down a tick in both measures week-to-week; read Andy Swift’s recap.
Elsewhere, The CW’s Riverdale (250K/0.1) ticked up… and NBC’s Weakest Link (1.6 mil/0.2) and Transplant (1.1 mil/0.1) both dipped.

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. Warning: Contents may be hot!
Equalizer did well but underperformed compared to NCIS LA in the demo. Still one of those sure thing co production renewals though.
I wouldn’t be surprised if alot of people didn’t think that many of the shows was gonna be new, I didn’t no Equalizer was new till 6pm. Easter used to be a day when shows didn’t have new episodes.
Nate Getz is back . Hooray!
Damn, NBCs post NFL Sunday night really is its…..weakest link. I’ll show myself out now
They could do with shifting The Blacklist there next season . Had The Endgame not posted such horrific numbers both shows could have made a nice little Sunday bloc.
I don’t watch the CBS dramas on Sunday night, but that lineup seems to keep plugging along just fine
Swat is a great show… love it got renewed!!!
SWAT is so-so at best. Hondo thinks he is a composite of a social worker and MLK Jr.
Once contestants vote off the strongest link (usually when they are down to 3 players), I change the channel from ‘Weakest Link.’ If the show is re-tooled to have the strongest players face off each other at the finals, ratings might spike up.
