TV ratings: 'The Amazing Race' and CBS lead a weak Sunday on the broadcast nets
The most-watched show on TV Sunday night probably wasn't on any of the broadcast networks. Nothing on ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC broke 10 million viewers, so there's a good chance "The Walking Dead" beat everything else on TV. The AMC series and the NBA All-Star Game on TNT probably will also have the top adults 18-49 marks of the night.
The premiere of the 22nd "Amazing Race" scored the best network numbers of the night for CBS, with ratings about even with its fall debut. "Once Upon a Time" and "Revenge" were up a little from last week for ABC, but they were still on the low side of their season averages. "The Good Wife" and "The Mentalist" were low for CBS as well.
CBS averaged 9.2 million viewers and a 5.7 rating/9 share for the night, leading second-place ABC (5.9 million, 3.5/6) by a substantial margin. NBC (4.4 million, 2.8/4) came in third, and FOX trailed with 3.75 million viewers and a 2.1/3.
FOX led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 1.7 rating, edging ABC and CBS, which tied for second at 1.6. NBC brought up the rear with a 1.2.
