- Out of 12.5 original hours on the big 4 on Sunday, nine were unscripted. Week three of Secret Millionaire and America's Next Great Restaurant, both already down double-digits in week two, took further double-digit dips. The latter failed to capitalize on the 1.6 for a rerun that it garnered on Tuesday. Secret Millionaire is still in pretty decent shape at this level, Restaurant not so much.
- In premiere world, Shark Tank kicked off season 2 with a series high, a tick ahead of the 1.8 it posted a few times all the way back in summer 2009. It dropped 24% from lead-in Secret Millionaire, which was easily the largest lead-in the show's ever had. The 1.9 was exactly what I predicted and not really a big deal either way. The upcoming Friday results will make or break the show.
- The last 90 minutes of Fox were new and relatively impressive. Bob's Burgers (2.2) was on par with recent results despite airing in originals after a Simpsons repeat (2.0) for the first time. (Then again, The Simpsons is one of TV's best-repeating shows, so it wasn't a huge dip in lead-in.) Family Guy (3.4) and The Cleveland Show (2.7) both
hittied their highest numbers since January.
- CBS' The Amazing Race hit a season high, while CSI: Miami posted its second straight pretty solid result in what has been an impressive March rally that has probably helped the show (if it was in any danger to begin with).
