NBC, in its first Sunday without NFL football, came in second with a 2.2/6. The season premiere of The Biggest Loser was up 21% from last year (which aired on a Tuesday) to a 2.9. Earlier, the Sunday premiere of Dateline was up 25% from a year ago to a 1.5.
ABC nipped CBS for third (though CBS had more total viewers), with a 1.8/5. Once Upon a Time returned even with its last episode at 3.1, while Revenge was down 4% to a 2.3. Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B---- did not benefit from their new temporary timeslot, as the low-rated comedies drew just a 1.0 and 0.9, respectively.
CBS finished with a 1.7/4. The Good Wife returned even at 1.8 while The Mentalist came back up 31% to a 2.1.
