ABC was all new from 8-11pm on Sunday night following a repeat of America's Funniest Home Videos (and it doesn't seem to matter ratings-wise if this show is a repeat or not). At 8pm, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was up two tenths in viewers and the demo from last week. It's still paling in comparison to Secret Millionaire in this slot. At 9pm, Desperate Housewives was up a nice 1.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo, rebounding from last week's troubling numbers. At 10pm, Brothers & Sisters was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, not posting as good retention. This show is likely to be cancelled or renewed for one final half season.

CBS had its regular lineup from 7-9pm. At 7pm, 60 Minutes was down three tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo. At 8pm, The Amazing Race was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Despite the Easter holiday, most network shows were up on Sunday. At 9pm, a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie was below normal levels and skewed incredibly old, which is not too surprising. Sometimes these movies are successes and sometimes not, this one was not.


NBC was all new on Sunday night with its regular lineup. At 7pm, Dateline NBC was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, remaining uncompetitive against 60 Minutes. At 8pm, America's Next Great Restaurant was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Celebrity Apprentice closed out the night and was up six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo, rebounding from last week's drop. Still, Donald Trump's presence all over the news with his possible presidential bid doesn't seem to be affecting this show one way or another. FOX was not very competitive with repeats of The Simpsons and the second airing of The Simpsons Movie.
