CBS narrowly won Sunday night with an overall 2.3 rating/6
share in the 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen overnight numbers. The Amazing Race dropped 10% to a 2.6
and CSI: Miami fell 14% to a 1.8, while The Good Wife was up 29% to a
2.2. (Due to NCAA overrun pushing CBS' lineup back 43 minutes in the
eastern and central time zones, ratings are subject to higher than normal
adjustments.)

ABC was a close second with an overall 2.2/6. In its third episode,
GCB fell 13% from last week to a 2.0.
Its lead-in Desperate Housewives was
down a tenth to a 2.5. Earlier, Once Upon
a Time
was steady at 2.9.

Fox's animated lineup put the network in third with an
overall 2.0/5. The Simpsons was up a
tenth from last week to a 2.1, followed by Bob's
Burgers
, which grew 11% to a 2.1. Family
Guy
and American Dad were both
flat at a 2.8 and 2.2, respectively.

NBC, with an overall 1.4/4, saw The Celebrity Apprentice slip 10% to a season-low 1.8. Harry's Law was steady at a 1.1.
