TV ratings: 'Once Upon a Time' leads Sunday in 18-49; FOX anniversary special not a big draw
Not a whole lot of people joined FOX in celebrating its 25th anniversary, with the special's ratings coming in lower than a typical Sunday's ratings for the network. As has been the case for the past few weeks, ratings on the whole were rather soft; CBS led the night in viewers, while "Once Upon a Time" scored the night's top 18-49 numbers (although it too was below average).
CBS averaged 9.9 million viewers and a 6.3 rating/10 share in households in primetime, beating out ABC's 7.5 million and 4.6/7. NBC (6.3 million, 4.0/6) came in third, and FOX trailed with 3.9 million viewers and a 2.2/4.
ABC and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49, but they each scored only a 1.9 rating in the demographic. FOX's 1.7 was good for third, while NBC drew a 1.5.
