On Sunday night, the FOX lineup was back in full force but it didn't have a direct football lead-in, which seems odd that FOX would choose to launch them this week, so the results were pretty weak. The Simpsons and Family Guy did OK but the news was bad for the second episode of Son of Zorn, which dropped a lot of the Simpsons audience (and of course its preview audience). The Last Man on Earth was especially weak at 9:30pm and well below even last fall's non-football Sundays. CBS had the NFL overrun and 60 Minutes having its usual post-football strength. It led into a two hour premiere of NCIS: Los Angeles on its new night. It delivered a solid 1.5 demo and 10.3 million viewers for its best performance since January. I actually thought it could have had a little more strength since it was following football and a strong 60 Minutes but this is still a solid Sunday start. Madam Secretary and Elementary return next Sunday.

As expected, it was a rough night for ABC with their drama lineup. The season premiere of Once Upon a Time topped the night for the network but at a meager 1.3 demo, which tied the season finale. After not being seen since May 2015, Secrets and Lies returned to a series low. This show had genuine momentum towards the end of its freshman season but then ABC left it on the bench for a year and a half and the momentum has completely evaporated. Unless it has an improbable rise like the first season, it's probably two and done. At 10pm, Quantico also only managed to tie its season finale with a weak 1.0 demo. It will be interesting to see if DVR numbers remain strong for this show. Finally, NBC had a Cowboys-Bears game which was up a bit from the first Sunday of the TV season last year.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: 60 Minutes (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Last Man on Earth (FOX)
