Sunday night had the second week of three shows from last week and there were mixed results. First up on FOX, Bob's Burgers started things down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Maybe a bit of a Daylight Savings effect? At 8pm, The Simpsons was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Brooklyn Nine-Nine was down half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo. This show has had great retention out of The Simpsons all year and I don't think it gets enough credit for that. Many thought that could be an issue before the season started. At 9pm, Family Guy was up a big 1.5 million viewers and nine tenths in the demo from its last airing against the SNL special three weeks ago. At 9:30pm, week two of The Last Man on Earth had a sizable drop from its surprising premiere numbers. It was down 1.4 million viewers and half a demo point despite a better lead-in. This was disappointing but it's still at numbers when it will easily get renewed. The question is, will it have another bad drop next week?

On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos returned after two weeks off and it was dead even with its last airing. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo from its return last week. The good news is it looked like Daylight Savings didn't have too much of an effect. At 9pm, week two of Secrets and Lies held up quite well. It was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. This is a great hold but last week was so disappointing so it's probably not enough as of now. At 10pm, Revenge returned up 1.1 million viewers and two tenths in the demo from its last airing in January.

Finally, it was an ugly night for CBS with a 1.1 demo topping their night. 60 Minutes skewed ancient and then Madam Secretary was down eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a weak series low. Not quite the same without football, is it? The total viewer count isn't bad, however. At 9pm, The Good Wife was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo, also hitting a series low with a terrible 1.0 demo. I think this show is ready to have an announced final season for next year. Newbie flop Battle Creek followed up its terrible premiere by dropping a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. This is already a dead show walking. The only question is whether or not it will air all its episodes. Since it's CBS and airing at 10pm, I think it will.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Family Guy (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Good Wife (CBS)
