  2. FROM CBS

    CBS Sunday Live + Same Day Highlights

    “60 MINUTES” IS SUNDAY’S #1 BROADCAST IN VIEWERS

    “MADAM SECRETARY,” “THE GOOD WIFE” AND “CSI: CYBER” ARE SUNDAY’S TOP THREE SCRIPTED BROADCASTS IN VIEWERS

    “MADAM SECRETARY” SWEEPS TIME PERIOD, POSTS GROWTH IN A18-49

    CBS TOPS SUNDAY IN VIEWERS AND A25-54

    · At 7:00 PM, 60 MINUTES was first in viewers (10.33m, up +10% from 9.38m for its last first run broadcast on 1/31), A18-49 (1.2, tie, up +9% from 1.2) and A25-54 (1.8, up +13% from 1.6).

    · At 8:00 PM, MADAM SECRETARY was first in viewers (9.99m), A18-49 (1.2, up +9% from 1.1 for its last first run episode on 1/31) and A25-54 (1.8, nc).

    · At 9:00 PM, THE GOOD WIFE was first in viewers (7.86m) and averaged 1.0 in A18-49 (nc) and 1.5 in A25-54 (nc).

    · At 10:00 PM, CSI: CYBER was first in viewers (6.23m) and averaged 0.9 in A18-49 and 1.3 in A25-54.

    · For the night, CBS was first in viewers (8.61m) and A25-54 (1.6).

  3. I don’t think CBS shows were rerun last night, likewise all Fox shows (apart from 7:00 Simpson) and America’s Funniest Home Videos and Castle on ABC. Also it’s unlikely Madam Secretary and SNL Valentine’s 8:00 ratings were that low. I assume that’s for A18-34?

  4. The Total Viewers and the Adults 18-49 listed at the top look like they are Saturday’s total viewers and adults 18-49.

  5. I don’t think that many people actually went out for Valentine’s Day last night it was way too cold and snowy in a good percentage of the nation I think 75 million people were affected this year and they probably went out more on Friday and Saturday this year. Madam Secretary did pretty well for not having that NFL boost this year.

    NBA All-Star Weekend was awesome in Toronto this weekend especially All-Star Saturday Night that probably easily beat everything on broadcast last night although the game itself was trash but it was great to see Kobe out there for his last time and getting love from the Canadians. Sometimes I wonder how the game would do if it was on ABC instead of cable. Man I miss those days when it would air on NBC late afternoons.

  6. FOX: Cooper Barrett, Bordertown and Bob’s Burgers should be immediate cancellations… They won’t be of course thanks to the bizarro-world wisdom of Walde and Newman…
