“Roseanne” was TV’s top-rated show for the third week in a row in the week of April 9. Unlike the previous two weeks, however, it wasn’t quite big enough to move ABC into first place in the network race.

That honor belonged to CBS, which edged ABC in adults 18-49 (1.1 to 1.0) and had a comfortable lead in total viewers (7.2 million vs. 4.91 million for ABC). The ACM Awards, which finished third in both adults 18-49 and viewers for the week, helped move the Eye in front.

“Roseanne” scored a 3.5 in the 18-49 demographic and 13.77 million viewers. “The Big Bang Theory” (2.4, 12.78 million) finished second in both measures.

Here are the network standings for last week and the season so far.
