On Sunday night, it was a quiet Valentine's Day. On NBC, a Valentine's Day special from The Tonight Show skewed pretty young with a 1.4 demo to 5.1 million viewers. This probably opens the door to more primetime specials from Jimmy Fallon. The CBS shows held up OK in total viewers without any football lead-in. The first two shows were actually up from their last airing. 60 Minutes was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo while Madam Secretary was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, The Good Wife was dead even. CSI: Cyber closed out the night down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos is entering its better season where it doesn't have to compete with football as it posted a season high. Following a special of The Bachelor, Castle aired on a special night but delivered a series low by 1.5 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. This can be forgiven for the unique circumstance but it doesn't change the fact that Castle is out of gas.

Finally on FOX, it was a pretty low night. Perhaps a bright spot, if you can call it that, came from Bob's Burgers. It was down three tenths in viewers but even in the demo and was well above the newbies, but more on that in a minute. The anchor shows, The Simpsons and Family Guy, both hit season lows but skewed pretty young. The Simpsons topped the night at a 1.3 demo. They both did a whole lot better than the newbies Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life and Bordertown, which completely fell off the map with less than 2 million viewers and 0.7-0.8 demos. These newbies are making Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Last Man on Earth look much better by comparison. Last Man will already replace Bordertown at the beginning of March as Bordertown will move to 7pm. I wouldn't be surprised to see Bob's Burgers and Cooper Barrett switch places then as well.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Madam Secretary (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life (FOX)
