On Sunday night, CBS had a strong showing with the Academy of Country Music Awards. The show was up nicely from last year's performance, especially in the total viewer count. Country music continues to be a huge draw despite multiple award shows a year. Earlier in the night on CBS, 60 Minutes was down big from last year's Masters-overrun edition but it didn't do badly considering it didn't have a lead-in of note. On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos started things off up nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. The veteran show was stronger than a lot of other Sunday entries and won its time period. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Secrets and Lies was up two tenths in viewers and the demo. This is the best retention yet and I think this show's chances of coming back are really strong at this point. At 10pm, Revenge was up a tenth in viewers and the demo.

It was a complete disaster for NBC as week three of A.D. The Bible Continues took a nasty third week plunge. It fell another 1.4 million viewers and half a demo point. It has fallen 1.1 demo points in just two weeks. This is certainly not the next Bible for TV. There may have been some crossover audience with the Country Music Awards, but this is still terrible. With this news, NBC has officially struck out on every new show this season. At 10pm, American Odyssey was down another million viewers and three tenths in the demo to a positively horrible 0.5. Finally on FOX, The Simpsons was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last new airing a month ago. Family Guy got its 9pm slot back and was up two tenths in viewers and the demo. The Last Man on Earth benefited from the better lead-in as it was up a tenth in viewers and the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Secrets and Lies (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: A.D. The Bible Continues (NBC)
