ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” recovered slightly from its season low two weeks ago, scoring a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 on Sunday. That’s up a tenth of a point in the demographic from its last episode. “Secrets and Lies” (0.7) and the fall finale of “Quantico” (0.7) were on par with their last outings.

CBS’ dramas “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.4) and “Madam Secretary” (0.9), on the other hand, are currently down a tenth each vs. last week, pending updates. “Elementary” started at 10:49 p.m. ET thanks to an NFL overrun and isn’t in the fast nationals but will be included in the finals.

FOX was mostly in reruns for the night, but a new “Bob’s Burgers” drew a 1.1, pending updates. “Sunday Night Football” scored a preliminary 5.8 for NBC, up two tenths from last week’s early number.

: 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.
