via press note:

Gaining 15% week to week, ABC’s America’s Funniest Home Videos tied for the Adult 18-49 lead during the 7 o’clock hour. The show earned a 6-week high in young adults – since 3/17/13.


Building 33% on its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 8pm, ABC’s Once Upon a Time surged to rank as the #1 drama on Sunday night. Once Upon a Time paced within 1-tenth of a rating point week to week. The ABC sophomore drama was the #1 most social broadcast series on Sunday night.


Returning to original for the first time since March (since 3/31/13), ABC’s Revenge came back with a 13% increase in Adults 18-49 from its last first-run airing to stand as the #2 broadcast drama of the night. During the 9pm hour, Revenge beat out CBS’ season finale of The Good Wife and the first hour of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice in Adults 18-49, while winning its slot among key Women (W18-49/W25-54).

    Lol, what a failure.

    OUAT was the #1 Social Broadcast Series on Sunday Night.

    What exactly does that mean? Social media action on Facebook and Twitter?

    I’m surprised ABC couldn’t find a way to spin the Red Widow!

    Yes it’s spin and yes OUAT has dropped significantly this season. But it is true that OUAT WAS the top rated scripted drama in 18-49 last night and that counts for a lot. It’s the same leeway I give AI, although AI is now being beaten it its time slot. Both shows have dropped but they are not going anywhere
