Ratings: ABC Dramas Eye Lows, Fox 'Toons Drop as Sunday Night Football Surges

WENDY MONIZ, STUART TOWNSEND

On a Sunday when most every piece of original programming was down week-to-week, ABC’s bubble drama Betrayal took one of the biggest hits, plunging 20 percent to a 0.8 demo rating, tying its series low.

In total viewers, Betrayal mustered 3.3 mil.

Opening ABC’s night, Once Upon a Time did 6.6 mil and a 2.1, down 13 percent and two tenths (tying its season low). Revenge led out of that with 5.5 mil/1.4, down 13 and 18 percent (matching its series low).

Fox’s animated line-up was down across the board with demo declines ranging from 16 percent (for American Dad) to 21 percent (The Simpsons).

Dominating Sunday night TV was NBC Sunday Night Football’s coverage of the Cowboys-Saints game, which with 19.3 mil and a 7.0 was up more than 20 percent from last week’s fast nationals.

CBS’ numbers are scrambled due to staggered starts, but as of right now, Amazing Race (~9.3 mil/1.9) and Good Wife (~9.7 mil/1.5) look down a smidgen, while The Mentalist (~7.7 mil/1.3) quite possibly held steady.
