CBS scored a somewhat surprising Sunday victory with its two-hour musical celebration of the Bee Gees.

Stayin' Alive: A Grammy Salute won the Easter holiday, averaging 10.3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49. The special, featuring a performance by lone surviving member Barry Gibb, topped the night by both measures and lifted CBS to an overall win — paired with 60 Minutes (0.9 adults) and a fatigued Elementary (0.6 adults). 

NBC won the race for No. 2, even though Little Big Shots aired a repeat. Chicago Justice (0.9 adults) and Shades of Blue (0.7 adults) were steady. ABC's original efforts were also unmoved, with Once Upon a Time (0.7 adults), Match Game (0.6 adults) and American Crime (0.4 adults) all in line with the prior week.

Fox aired repeats.
