Ratings for ABC’s supernatural freshman drama 666 Park Avenue managed to avoid dropping this week, but is this stabilizing performance too late to save the show?

Sunday’s 666 delivered 4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the adult demo, same as last week, apparently ceasing (for the moment, at least) the show’s recent downward trend. (Last night’s episode was actually titled “Downward Spiral” though, ratings wise, that’s exactly what the show managed to halt). That’s getting firmly beat by CBS’ The Mentalist (10 million, 1.8) at 10 p.m. and, of course, NBC’s football coverage. That 1.3 demo rating makes it tough to see ABC picking up a full season of 666. Then again, Thursday’s Last Resort, which is said to be leaning toward a pickup, only did a hair better last week.

Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time (8.7 million, 2.7) fell 23 percent this week for its Ruby-centered episode, with Revenge (7.5 million, 2.4) down 11 percent too.

Also Sunday: Amazing Race fell 8 percent and The Good Wife was steady. Fox’s animated lineup got pushed by 20 minutes thanks to NFL overrun. From eyeballing the chart, it looks like pretty low modest ratings for its Family Guy 200th episode and special.
