TV Ratings: 'Cosmos,' 'The Bachelorette' lead weak Sunday

By Kyle Johnson,

Cosmos and The Bachelorette tied in the advertiser-important demographic on Sunday night, easily topping all other fare, which consisted mostly of either canceled shows or encores.

ABC edged out the victory over Fox with 4.11 million viewers overall, but tied in the 18-49 demographic with a 1.0 rating. The network started off with an America's Funniest Home Videos encore, reports HitFix, which was then followed by The Bachelorette, which managed to fall even lower than last week poor outing to a 1.3 demo rating.

Fox was even with ABC in the demo, but lagged far behind with only 2.42 million viewers. The canceled Enlisted returned with an even 0.4 rating, despite being on a couple month break. Cosmos pulled in a 1.3 rating in the demo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC took third for the night as the last of the major networks to offer any new programming. The network averaged a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demo and had the second-best overall audience with 4.115 million viewers. The canceled Believe improved slightly on the night to a 0.9 rating and the similarly doomed Crisis snagged a positive 0.8 in the demo. Still, despite the slight growth, they are canceled for a reason as they failed to top an encore of America's Got Talent.

CBS only offered encores for Sunday, but still managed a 0.6 rating in the demo and the best audience of the night with an average of 5.14 million views.
