Sunday's broadcast ratings were fairly steady, with the Game of Thrones premiere on HBO not having a marked effect on any show at 9 o'clock.

ABC's American Idol led the night among adults 18-49, rebounding from the prior week's series low as it entered the audience-vote phase of the competition. Sunday's show drew a 1.3 in the demo, up from 1.0 a week ago, and 7.18 million viewers, a 17 percent improvement over last week's 6.12 million.

America's Funniest Home Videos ticked up to 0.9 for ABC, and Shark Tank held steady at 0.8.

CBS had the night's most-watched show in 60 Minutes, which drew 8.54 million viewers, along with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. Its scripted shows, however, were all on the low side: God Friended Me's season finale (0.6), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.7) and Madam Secretary (0.4) all tied their worst demo ratings of the season and were below average in total viewers.

World of Dance held at 0.7 in adults 18-49 for the third straight week, and its total audience of 3.27 million is also on par with last week's 3.24 million. The recently renewed Good Girls posted a 0.6 in the demo, also even with a week ago. Fox and The CW aired repeats in primetime.

Ratings for Game of Thrones will be available Tuesday morning.

ABC led the network standings in primetime with a 1.1 rating, half a point better than CBS and NBC, which tied at 0.6. Fox averaged 0.5 and The CW 0.1.
