The Amazing Race crossed the finish line first this Sunday, besting all comers in both total audience (with 9.06 million viewers) and in the coveted 18-49 demo (scoring a 2.4 rating).
Versus last week’s golf-goosed outing, CBS’ competition series dipped only slightly in audience and in fact ticked up a tenth in the demo.
Leading out of that, this season’s penultimate The Good Wife (8.9 mil/1.5) was down 12 percent and two tenths, while The Mentalist (9 mil/1.6) enjoyed gains of 14 percent versus last Sunday’s laaaaaate outing.
Elsewhere, Once Upon a Time returned to 7.3 mil and a 2.1, down a tenth from its last fresh episode; ABC’s Remember Sunday telepic retained 6.8 mil/1.4…. NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice was down 7 percent and two tenths to under 5 mil and a 1.6…. Fox’s Cleveland Show (2.1 mil/0.9) dropped 25 percent in the demo, Bob’s Burgers (3.74 mil/1.7) ticked up and American Dad (3.9 mil/1.8) fell 14 percent.
