A few small improvements carried ABC to an overall victory in the Sunday primetime ratings.

At 8 p.m., “Celebrity Family Feud” ticked up from the 0.7 it scored last week to a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49, making it the night’s second-highest-rated broadcast in the demo. “The $100,000 Pyramid” similarly rose from its previous 0.7 to a 0.8, while “To Tell the Truth” stayed even with another 0.7.

The three game shows were the most-watched broadcasts of their respective hours, and gave ABC the night’s overall win in both the 18-49 demo and in total viewers.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Big Brother” took the night’s no. 1 spot, scoring the same 1.0 rating that it did last Sunday, while “Instinct” (0.3) and “The Good Fight” (0.2) both held steady week-to-week as well. On the CW, “Burden of Truth” matched its 0.1 from a week ago.

A new episode of “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” capped off another night of mostly repeats for FOX, with the same low 0.2 that its series premiere scored last Sunday.

: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
