On Sunday night, ABC had the Billboard Music Awards. The buzzy event had a lot of big names performing and the debut of a Taylor Swift music video. It resulted in the best numbers for the show in over a decade. Earlier in the night, Tom Bergeron's final episode as host of America's Funniest Home Videos was up half a million viewers and even in the demo. It's 1.4 demo was the second best of the night besides the awards. Over on CBS, 60 Minutes started things out even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. Another I Love Lucy special aired. It didn't quite get the numbers the Christmas special did and it skewed old but the total viewer count wasn't bad. Two episodes of the cancelled Battle Creek followed and saw a new low with a terrible 0.6 demo for both hours. The series finale is next week.

It was a quiet night for the FOX finales. Bob's Burgers bookended the finales and the 9:30pm edition was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 8pm, The Simpsons was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Brooklyn Nine-Nine followed and was down two tenths in viewers and the demo. This is the second straight season it has gotten a 1.1 demo for its season finale. At 9pm, Family Guy was down eight tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo from its last new episode two weeks ago. Finally, NBC continued to inch downward. A.D. The Bible Continues was up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo while American Odyssey was down a tenth in viewers and the demo to a horrible 0.4 demo. NBC is going to keep these shows on for several more weeks? Especially American Odyssey?

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: America's Funniest Home Videos (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: American Odyssey (NBC)
