On the first Sunday without broadcast football (the Pro Bowl was on ESPN), it was tough sledding for the regular network shows. NBC was on top with a surprisingly strong result for the Miss Universe Pageant. I'm not sure why there was more interest this year, but there was. The FOX lineup looked especially weak and that's not a good sign for the rest of the spring. Mulaney tied series lows at 7pm, but that's not really worth noting. The 8-10pm lineup was troubled as everything except Bob's Burgers hit a season low. The Simpsons and Brooklyn Nine-Nine tied their second worst results ever (and it was easily Brooklyn's worse Sunday night showing). Family Guy hit an outright series low, but was still the top scripted show of the night at a 1.6 demo. This lineup was a rare bright spot in the fall lineup for FOX. Now, their lineup is looking a little stronger on nights like Wednesday and Thursday, but Sundays might fall apart.

There were two season, and quite likely series, finales on ABC. But first up, America's Funniest Home Videos was up a big 2.5 million viewers and eight tenths in the demo for a season high. It had a better lead-in from basketball and no major football competition (the Pro Bowl barely counts). At 8pm, Galavant was up a million viewers and two tenths in the demo for its season finale. I really doubt that was enough of a rebound for the show that had a surprise start and quick fade over its four weeks. The season finale of Resurrection followed and was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This show premiered to a 3.8 demo in March and hit a 0.8 demo less than a year later. I don't see any scenario where this comes back. At 10pm, Revenge was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on CBS, 60 Minutes wasn't much of a player without an NFL lead-in while a special Undercover Boss was solid at 8pm. Two episodes of CSI did OK with the regular 10pm hour doing better than 9pm. It really looks like CBS is in burn-off mode with this show but they're probably waiting to see how their midseason dramas do.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Undercover Boss (CBS)
