As has been the case for much of the past year, ABC easily controlled Sunday's ratings, although "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" slipped some from its past heights.
ABC averaged a 10.4 rating/16 share in primetime Sunday, beating CBS, 7.9/12. NBC took third at 6.5/10, with FOX not far behind at 6.2/10. The WB trailed with a 1.8/3.
Among adults 18-49, ABC's 7.1 rating led the way. FOX took second in the demographic with a 4.7, although that may turn out to be somewhat inflated by a late-ending NFL game in much of the country. NBC's 2.9 was good for third, beating out CBS' 2.8. The WB averaged 1.1.
The late NFL game and FOX's postgame show scored an 8.5/15 to win the 7 o'clock hour (those numbers reflect time period only; West Coast viewers saw other programming). CBS finished second with "60 Minutes," 7/1/12. The season premiere of "America's Funniest Home Videos," 5.0/9, came in third for ABC, edging NBC's "Dateline," 4.9/8. The WB went with repeats of "Reba."
CBS moved into the lead at 8 p.m. with a strong showing from "Cold Case," 10.7/16. "EM: Home Edition" was second for ABC at 8.4/13, down more than a point from last week. "The Simpsons" and "The War at Home" averaged 5.4/8 for FOX, keeping NBC and "The West Wing" in fourth. "Charmed" posted a 2.4/4 for The WB.
"Desperate Housewives," 16.4/24, dominated the 9 p.m. hour and scored the night's biggest rating for ABC. NBC moved up to second with "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," 7.9/12. The CBS movie "Mayday" was third at 7.0/10. FOX slipped one spot to fourth with "Family Guy," 5.0/7, and "American Dad," 4.4/6. An hour of "Blue Collar TV" closed The WB's evening.
At 10 p.m., "Grey's Anatomy" kept ABC in first place with an 11.8/19. "Crossing Jordan" scored an 8.3/13 in the first half of a crossover with "Las Vegas." CBS' movie finished with a 6.8/11.
