THE RUNDOWN: Sunday, March 1

On the first Sunday after event season (Golden Globes, Grammys, Oscars, Super Bowl, SNL 40, etc), there are three series premieres. ABC stands the best chance of having a big premiere like Resurrection after the Oscars last year. They have a two hour premiere of the new Ryan Philippe drama Secrets and Lies. I think it'll be the best premiere of the night, but it won't come close to Resurrection's premiere numbers last year unless Once Upon a Time comes back bigger than I expect. The two hours doesn't help either. CBS has quirky new drama Battle Creek, but they'll likely skew even more ancient than usual without any football lead-in. FOX will struggle to be on the map and I have very low expectations for their new comedy entry, a one hour premiere of The Last Man on Earth.
