Ratings Race: 'The Gates' Steadies for ABC, 'Scoundrels' Keeps Slipping


Fox (1.4/4, 3.078 million) played their typical Sunday dance, taking the night in the 18-49 demo while at the same time coming in dead last in total viewers. That "Animation Domination" lineup might not bring in the biggest audience, but it's the "right" kind of viewers, according to the advertisers.


First in viewers, then, was CBS (1.3/4, 6.39 million), enjoying a successful summer launch for 'Big Brother,' as well as the transplanted power of Thursday night's 'The Mentalist.' NBC (1.2/4, 4.936 million) mixed up the night as well, shifting 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent to 8 PM ET to make room for a repeat of 'America's Got Talent.'


ABC (1.1/3, 4.079 million) got mixed, but really bad news. While 'The Gates' seems to have finally steadied in the ratings, albeit at a pretty low number, 'Scoundrels' just keeps dropping and dropping. At least 'America's Funniest Home Videos' had its best outing in more than a month, so it wasn't a total loss.
