Sunday night had an NCAA Basketball overrun which had a halo effect and brought the entire CBS lineup up. Starting 20 minutes late, 60 Minutes was up three million viewers and eight tenths in the demo for its best performance since football season. The Amazing Race followed and was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a spring high. At 9pm, The Good Wife was up a big 1.9 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for its best performance since January 12. Some of this may have been due to the halo effect from NCAA Basketball but more of it might have been due to how much The Good Wife has been in the news this week with its shocking twist last Sunday. At 10pm, The Mentalist was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. 

ABC's drama lineup seems to be stabilizing. First up though, America's Funniest Home Videos was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Week four of Resurrection was down 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. While it's still another drop, it's much less severe than the past couple weeks so that may be a sign that it is stabilizing. If it can stay above a 2.0 demo, ABC will be more than happy to bring this one back. In fact, things would have to go south in a hurry for this show to not get a renewal. At 10pm, Revenge was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. ABC has two underperforming veterans to think about for next year: this and Nashville. Should they really bring both back? They already have Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Castle, Once Upon a Time, and probably Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Resurrection. All those shows are outperforming Revenge and Nashville.

On NBC, week two of American Dream Builders was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from its series premiere. This show is going to be quickly forgotten. Speaking of quickly forgotten, Believe was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo and Crisis was down a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. NBC will probably air these out for the rest of the season, but that will be it. On FOX, Bob's Burgers was down two tenths in viewers and the demo, American Dad! was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo, The Simpsons was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo, Family Guy was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, as it continues to drop some each week.
