Most shows were down on Sunday night. NBC's new Sunday lineup is not panning out for them. The new reality series American Dream Builders was DOA at 8pm. Airing at the same time where ABC had many great years of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, American Dream Builders was not able to tap into the feel good Sunday crowd. A recap of The Voice did better at 8pm last week. At 9pm, week two of the regular timeslot for Believe was down 1.5 million viewers and three tenths in the demo to a weak 1.2 demo. It's already heading below what bubble shows Parenthood and Revolution are getting so this looks like a short term player for NBC. Same goes for Crisis as its second episode was also down 1.5 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. The only good news for this show was it built on Believe for the second week in a row.

ABC saw everything take a step back. At 7pm, America's Funniest Home Videos was up half a million viewers but down a tenth in the demo. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was down nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. After two solid weeks back from its winter hiatus, it stumbled a bit this week. But the news was worse for week three of Resurrection at 9pm. It was down 1.8 million viewers and six tenths in the demo. Yes, it had a surprisingly huge premiere but it has fallen an alarming 1.3 demo points in just two episodes since its premiere. It's probably not done leveling off yet even if it doesn't dip as much in the weeks to come. Either way, this does not seem like ABC's big new hit anymore. At 10pm, Revenge was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. A 1.5 demo is not great by any means but it's still an improvement on a timeslot that has been tough for ABC in recent years. 

On CBS, the NCAA Basketball coverage spilled over into primetime but the only show it helped was 60 Minutes as it was down four tenths in viewers but up three tenths in the demo. With everything starting half an hour later, The Amazing Race was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo, The Good Wife was up seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, and The Mentalist was up seven tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The Good Wife had a bombshell episode so it will be interesting to see if that show rises in the weeks to come. FOX's animated lineup was all within a tenth in the demo from last week's numbers but week three of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey was down seven tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. Its third week was not nearly as promising as its second week.
