Two bubble shows helped and hurt their cases on Sunday night with a strong night for Secrets and Lies and another bad week for A.D. On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos started things off down four tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At a 1.5 demo, it was tied for the third highest of the night. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. The best news for ABC came from Secrets and Lies, which was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series high. The momentum is clearly with this show and I think this performance sealed its renewal. What a turn-around this show has had since its disappointing premiere in early March. At 10pm, Revenge was up six tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

Over on CBS, 60 Minutes was up four tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo from last week. After a week off, Madam Secretary didn't have an inflated lead-in and fell nine tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo for a series low. The viewer total still wasn't bad and CBS can take solace in the fact that things will probably be much better for this show again in the fall when football is back. At 9pm, The Good Wife was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Battle Creek ended the night down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Despite a better lead-in and less competition, NBC's bubble show A.D. The Bible Continues was down another six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It's not looking good for this show. At 10pm, American Odyssey was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Honestly, repeats of almost any current NBC drama (maybe even The Night Shift) would do better than this.

Finally on FOX, everything was new from 7:30-10pm for the first time since mid-March. Bob's Burgers was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 8pm, The Simpsons was up a tenth in viewers and the demo from last week's poor showing. Brooklyn Nine-Nine had been off for the longest and it came back down two tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo, fully retaining The Simpsons in the demo. At 9pm, Family Guy was down a tenth in viewers and the demo despite a better lead-in. The Last Man on Earth closed things out down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. All in all, things could have been worse for FOX.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Secrets and Lies (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: American Odyssey (NBC)
