On Sunday night, The Good Wife bid farewell after its seven season run. It was up 1.4 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. The viewer total is the best since November 14 while the demo was the best since January 17. It had a nice bounce for the finale but nothing special. This show was never a major ratings draw but it was a dying breed: a critically acclaimed network drama. It had a great run for CBS filled with awards attention. Earlier in the night for CBS, 60 Minutes was down 1.1 million viewers and even in the demo while the season finale of Madam Secretary was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Will this show move to 9pm next year? To close out the night, the season finale of Elementary was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. On ABC, all four shows were down a tenth in the demo. For the dramas, these were their lowest demos in over a month. Among total viewers, America's Funniest Home Videos was down four tenths, Once Upon a Time was even, The Family was down three tenths, and Quantico was up a tenth.

On NBC, a short-order Dateline offshoot did little at 7pm while a clip show of Little Big Shots did pretty well by clip show standards. At 9pm, The Carmichael Show was down nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This show really should not get renewed but something tells me it very well might. At 9:30pm, Crowded was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, Dateline NBC was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Bordertown was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo, The Simpsons was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo and Bob's Burgers was down a tenth in viewers and the demo in the 8pm hour. At 9pm, Family Guy was the best of the block but was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. The Last Man on Earth closed things out up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

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