‘American Idol’ Snags Demo Win, ’60 Minutes’ Grabs Largest Crowd On Sunday

American Idol-ed ABC grabbed its third consecutive Sunday win in the 18-49 age bracket, taking three of primetime’s four hours last night, while CBS controlled every hour of primetime in total viewer including the night’s top-tallying 60 Minutes.

For Idol, it won for a third week running in the top demo spot among broadcast programs, holding even with previous week’s rating. At 10 Pm, ABC’s Shark Tank tied a season high in the 18-49 age bracket.

While nabbing the night’s top spot in total viewers, 60 Minutes also took the demo in its 7 Pm time slot. Demo-wise, the newsmag jumped three tenths of a rating point to tie its best rating this season excluding NFL overrun nights. Fueling that increase, an Ncaa Basketball Selection Show lead-in clocked its best overnight rating of the past five years.
