"Desperate Housewives" got a series-finale boost in Sunday's ratings, drawing its biggest audience in more than a year. It and "Once Upon a Time's" first-season finale helped ABC beat out CBS and the "Survivor: One World" finale for the night.

ABC averaged 9.5 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/10 share in households for the evening. That was just enough to beat out CBS (9.4 million, 5.6/10). NBC came in third with 5.5 million viewers and a 3.5/6, while FOX (3.6 million, 2.2/4) trailed.

ABC's lead among adults 18-49 was a little wider: It averaged a 2.8 rating in the demographic to CBS' 2.3. FOX, 1.7, finished third, while NBC posted a 1.3.
