CBS wins with the usual...
Scandal was up from last week to get its second-largest audience ever last night. The bad news for ABC is that Once Upon A Time in Wonderland fell from the season premiere, losing over a million viewers and half a point in the demographic. Meanwhile, The CW's Reign had a decent premiere and The Vampires Diaries was up from last week. CBS' comedies The Millers and The Crazy Ones were up. NBC continued to do poorly, but they were up from last week. FOX still did well with baseball coverage.
CBS won with 10.7 million viewers and a 6.7 rating/11 share in households, followed by FOX (8.4 million, 5.4/9), ABC (7.5 million, 5.1/8), NBC (3.4 million, 2.3/4) and The CW (2.4 million, 1.5/2). In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS won with a 2.6 rating, followed by ABC (2.4), FOX (2.4), NBC (1.2) and The CW (1.0).
