CBS won the viewership race on an unsurprisingly slow Sunday night, primarily with the viewer strength of 60 Minutes [tops for the night at 9.3 million] and Million Dollar Password, while finishing fourth in the demo. NBC took the demo largely on the demo power of a 2 hour Dateline [#1 for the night with a 2.2 rating / 6 share for adults 18-49], which Berman has called "overused" in the summer, but looks to me like a pretty wise investment of summer $/demo rating. ABC reruns and Fox's Jurassic Park movie finished well back in viewers but still beat CBS in the demo. Of course, no one watched the CW.
