Ratings: Once Upon a Time on Top; CBS Gets March Madness Boost
Once Upon a Time
Once Upon a Time led the way as Sunday's top show, but a March Madness-skewed CBS won the night.
After taking a big fall last week, the fairy-tale drama was flat, drawing 8.57 million viewers and a 2.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic to claim honors as the top-rated show of the night. Along with Desperate Housewives (8.99 million, 2.5), and GCB (6.28 million, 2.0), both of which dropped in the demo, ABC averaged 7.5 million and a 2.2 — second to CBS' 9.7 million and 2.3.
