On Sunday night, FOX had a night of season finales for its cartoons. The Cleveland Show was up two tenths in viewers but down three tenths in the demo to a very low 1.0. At 8pm, The Simpsons was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Bob's Burgers was down a tenth in viewers and the demo despite the better lead-in. At 9pm, a one hour finale of Family Guy was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. This whole night needs some freshening up but FOX will keep it as is. NBC aired the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice. Though it was up 1.4 million viewers and four tenths in the demo, it was the lowest rated finale ever. This franchise is getting tired for NBC. On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo for its season finale. The Billboard Music Awards followed and was down some from last year's telecast. CBS aired two episodes of 60 Minutes and a Jesse Stone movie which all skewed incredibly old, particularly the movie.
