Sunday Overnights: CBS Tops Quiet Sunday

ABC to Network to Beat in Adults 18-49

Sunday, July 7, 2019

Household Ratings/Share
CBS: 3.3/ 6, ABC: 3.0/ 4, NBC: 2.3/ 4, Fox: 0.7/ 1, CW: 0.3/ 1

Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
NBC: +10, ABC and CBS: – 3 each, Fox: -12

Ratings Breakdown:
Led by an encore telecast of veteran “60 Minutes” (#1 for the night: 5.3 rating/11 share) CBS topped this quiet Sunday in the household overnights, besting No. 2 ABC by 10 percent. But ABC’s 8-11 p.m. game show trio – “Celebrity Family Feud” (#1: 3.7/ 7 at 8 p.m.), “The $100,000 Pyramid” (#1: 3.2/ 6 at 9 p.m.) and “To Tell the Truth” (#1: 2.5/ 5 at 10 p.m.) – should be enough for the network to win the evening in adults 18-49.

Also original last night was CBS’ combination of “Big Brother” (#2: 3.0/ 5 at 8 p.m.) and sophomore drama “Instinct” (#2: 2.6/ 5 at 9 p.m.), which led into another season one episode of CBS All Access drama “The Good Fight” (#2: 2.4/ 5 at 10 p.m.). And The CW featured legal drama “Burden of Truth,” which was left at the overnight starting gate at a 0.4/ 1 in households at 8 p.m.

In week two news was Fox parody talk show “Just What Happened??! with Fred Savage” at a mere 0.5/ 1 at 9:30 p.m. (#4). Comparably, that slipped by one-tenth of a rating point (or 17 percent) from the 0.6 debut one week earlier.
