TV Ratings: 'Resurrection' bows out steady, 'Simpsons' boosted by Lego episode

By Kyle Johnson,

Resurrection has suffered in the TV ratings since its strong premiere, but the show managed to bow out steady on Sunday night while The Simpsons enjoyed a ratings boost thanks to its Lego episode.

Sunday night went to ABC, which managed a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and a weak 6.45 million viewers, reports HitFix. America's Funniest Home Videos started off the night strong with a 1.6 in the demo, followed by the first season finale of Resurrection which managed to stop dropping and hold strong with a 2.0 demo rating. Once Upon a Time dipped to 2.0 rating, while Revenge closed the night steady with a 1.3 in the demo.

Fox followed close behind in the demo with a 1.6 rating, but had a tiny average audience of 3.6 million viewers. A Lego episode of The Simpsons boosted the long-running animated comedy back up to a 1.9 in the demo, while Bob's Burgers stayed even with a 1.1 rating. American Dad also was even on the night with a 1.3 in the demo, while Cosmo managed to improve to a 1.4 rating.

Despite a low 1.3 in the advertiser-important 18-49 demo, CBS had the best overall audience with 8.99 million viewers, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 60 Minutes started off the evening dipping to a 1.0, while The Amazing Race followed the downward trajectory to a 1.7 rating. The Good Wife and The Mentalist both managed to tie series lows with a 1.2 in the demo. THR notes that this Sunday was not a good night to struggle with upfronts coming and the show still seeking a renewal.

NBC took in a 0.9 in the demo and 3.6 million viewers. American Dream Builders dipped to a 0.5 in the demo, while the other three shows on the night, Dateline, Believe and Crisis, were the same in the demo with a 1.0 rating.
