Without last week's Masters lead-in, CBS still won the night -- but 60 Minutes was down half of a point for a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. The Amazing Race (1.6 adults), The Good Wife (1.4 adults) and The Mentalist (1.4 adults) were all down but more or less steady, with The Good Wife shedding just a tenth and the other series dropping two-tenths. CBS took a 1.4 adults rating and 8.5 million viewers for the night.

Once Upon a Time (1.7 adults) hit a series low on ABC, dropping three-tenths of a point from last week. Telepic In My Dreams earned a 1.0 rating in the demo, giving ABC a 1.1 rating with adults 18-49 and 4.6 million viewers.

Fox's only original cartoon, Bob's Burgers, (0.6 adults) was down two-tenths for a low. Cosmos (1.4 adults) improved by a tenth of a point for a nightly average of a 1.0 rating and 2.6 million viewers.

NBC's scores are preliminary and subject to adjustment, with NBA basketball airing in some markets. Moving into the 7 p.m. time slot, American Dream Builders (0.6 adults) was off a tenth of a point, while Dateline (0.9 adults) improved by the same measure. Believe (1.2 adults) improved by two-tenths of a point, and Crisis (0.9 adults) held even. NBC took a 0.9 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.7 million viewers.
