CBS above par on Sunday (but that's good); 'Secret Millionaire' goes bankrupt on ABC

Posted on

A kick in the pants from its Masters coverage and swell performances by Undercover Boss and CSI: Miami gave CBS its fifth consecutive win on Sunday in viewers (13.1 million) and adults 18-49 (2.3 rating/8 share), according to early nationals. Show starts were a little off, so the combination of The Amazing Race and Boss earned a 3.0/8 and 10.4 million, while Boss and Miami posted a 3.2/8 and 10.2 million. Each 18-49 ratings point equals 1.3 million.

Fox was second in the demo and featured another winning performance by Family Guy (3.3/9, 6.6 million). Dang, it’s good to be Seth MacFarlane. NBC came in third with America’s Next Great Restaurant posting a 1.2/3 — down 20 percent versus last week  — and averaging 3.4 million, followed by Celebrity Apprentice, which earning a 2.9/7 — down 6 percent — and 8 million.

ABC finished fourth in the key demo, with the season finale of Secret Millionaire averaging a  2.3/7 — a season low. Ouch. It lured 9.1 million. Brothers & Sisters only earned a 1.8/5 and 6.5 million. Think the Walker clan will be back for another season?
