TV Ratings: 'Secrets & Lies' Rises to New High on Sunday
Sophomore prospects for ABC midseason entry Secrets & Lies are looking better. The steady performer logged a new series high 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 on Sunday night, rising two-tenths of a point and tying an even Once Upon a Time as broadcast's top series of the night. Revenge (1.0 adults) was also even on ABC, helping make it the top net of the evening.
With the exception of Family Guy (1.5 adults), off two-tenths of a point, Fox's entire Sunday block of The Simpsons (1.5 adults), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.5 adults) and Last Man on Earth (1.4 adults) held steady with their last originals.
CBS saw Madam Secretary (1.0 adults) fall four-tenths of a point to a series low ahead of steady outings of The Good Wife (1.0 adults) and Battle Creek (0.7 adults).
A.D. The Bible Continues (1.1 adults) was steady with last week's showing on NBC — as was American Odyssey, which is clearly on borrowed time with another 0.5 rating in the key demo.
