The Family didn't fare any better in its Sunday move, losing nearly half of its premiere sampling last week.

The ABC drama averaged just a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers. In the key demo, that ties it with Fox's Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life and CBS' CSI: Cyber as the lowest-rated original Big Four telecast of the night.

Elsewhere on ABC, Once Upon a Time returned intact with a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49. Quantico's same-day score slipped from its last new episode, down two-tenths of a point in the key demo to a 1.1 rating.

A rare interview with O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark goosed Dateline on NBC. The two-hour episode averaged a three-year high 1.4 rating in the key demo.

The new time slot of Border Town doubled its last live score on Fox, averaging a 1.5 rating with adults 18-49. Bob's Burgers (1.1 adults), The Simpsons (1.3 adults) and Family Guy (1.3 adults) were all steady with their last originals, but The Last Man on Earth slipped two-tenths of a point in its return for a 1.1 rating with adults 18-49.

60 Minutes was improved with a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 on CBS, while both Madam Secretary (1.2 adults) and The Good Wife (0.9 adults) were steady after last week's Oscar-induced hiatus.
