On Sunday night, CBS had a March Madness tournament overrun which set the lineup half an hour late but it did help 60 Minutes rise a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 8:30pm, Madam Secretary was down half a million viewers and up a tenth in the demo. The Good Wife followed and was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. I think CBS should consider letting The Good Wife and CSI share a timeslot (Sunday at 10?) with each show getting 13 episode final seasons next year. At 10pm, Battle Creek was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. CBS is leaving this on because it's not doing damage to the rest of the lineup and also CBS doesn't have anything else to air except reruns. This probably would have been pulled already had it been the fall.

Over on ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Secrets and Lies is quietly surviving as it was up a tenth in viewers and the demo, returning to its premiere demo number from three weeks ago. I think this show actually has a chance to return at this point which seemed very unlikely after its premiere. At 10pm, Revenge was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Bob's Burgers was even with last week. Two episodes of The Last Man on Earth aired at 9pm and it was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. After some alarming drops, this was a nice fourth week performance that certainly helps its renewal chances.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Secrets and Lies (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Battle Creek (CBS)
