'Simpsons'-'Futurama' cross-over tops Sunday ratings

Posted on

Simpsorama

Good news everyone: The Simpsons’ crossover with the dearly departed Futurama topped all broadcast entertainment shows in the ratings Sunday night.

About 6.6 million viewers tuned in, with a 2.9 rating among adults 18-49, edging out second-place finisher ABC’s Once Upon a Time (7.4 million, 2.5) in the demo. Granted, that’s nowhere close to the Simpsons and Family Guy crossover that kicked off the season. (That hour-long episode was a 4.5 in the demo.) But the move still spiked Simpsons‘ ratings by 45 percent from last week.

Also Sunday: Fox’s freshman comedy Mulaney (0.9) is still struggling, CBS’ veteran procedural CSI (1.2) dipped to a series low and new drama Madam Secretary (1.4) tied its low. ABC’s Revenge (1.3) hit a modest season high.

UPDATE: Obviously the biggest entertainment show across broadcast and cable was AMC’s The Walking Dead –– 13.5 million viewers and a 4.6 rating.
