Ratings: The Simpsons Tops Sunday, Once Rebounds, Revenge Slips to Season Low

The Simpsons had the last laugh this Sunday, surging 38 percent week-to-week to top all non-sports rivals in the 18-49 demo with a 3.3 rating. In total audience, the Fox ‘toon — buoyed by a robust football lead-in — drew 7.53 mil, up 49 percent.

That set the stage for the rest of Fox’s Animation Domination slate to enjoy gains: Bob’s Burgers (4.7 mil/2.0) rose 11 percent in the demo, Family Guy (5.8 mil/2.8) inched up 8 percent and The Cleveland Show (4.3 mil/1.9) improved 19 percent from its previous, 7:30 outing.

Sunday’s usual scripted champ, Once Upon a Time (8.8 mil/3.0) bounced back 11 percent from its all-time low, yet lead-out Revenge (6.8 mil/2.2) slipped 12 percent to a season low. 666 Park closed ABC’s night with under 4 mil and a 1.2, flat versus its previous episode.

Lastly — pending adjustments due to significantly staggered start times in some time zones — CBS’ Amazing Race (with a preliminary 9.9 mil/2.5) ticked up a smidgen, The Good Wife (9.5 mil/1.7) looks flat and The Mentalist (10.3 mil/1.8) appears to have surged some 20 percent.

Cable ratings, as always and forever, come in much later, so no Liz & Dick hate-watch numbers yet, folks.
