On Sunday night, three season finales populated the night while Revenge saw a small spike ahead of next week's finale. On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos started things off down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. The season finale of Secrets and Lies ended things on a positive note, up seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for series highs. This was quite a surprising turn this series took after its so-so debut. It went from being nearly DOA to a very strong renewal chance. At 10pm, the penultimate episode of Revenge was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This bodes well for its chances of a decent send-off next week.

On CBS, 60 Minutes was down 1.7 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 8pm, the season finale of Madam Secretary was down eight tenths in viewers and even in the demo. This show needs football back. At 9pm, The Good Wife was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. This is getting pretty dire for this show. I don't know if they'll do it, but it's time to have a 13 episode final season. At 10pm, Battle Creek was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. On NBC, A.D. The Bible Continues did not drop for the first time. It was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Still not enough but it's so far managed to be the only new NBC show to not drop below a 1.0 demo. At 10pm, American Odyssey was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo at a terrible 0.5.

Finally on FOX, Bob's Burgers started things out up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The 8pm hour did not go well. The Simpsons was down two tenths in viewers and the demo. It was just renewed for two more seasons, which will bring it to 28 seasons. At 8:30pm, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was down a tenth in viewers and a rough three tenths in the demo. These are more shows that will be very happy to have football back in the fall. At 9pm, Family Guy was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo despite the weak 8pm hour. At 9:30pm, the season finale of The Last Man on Earth was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It did a lot better than Mulaney in the same slot with a much weaker night overall. The question now is will it get a chance to grow in the fall or will it be held for midseason? Or another night?

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