The exciting conclusion to the Masters gave CBS an early primetime bump, but even without that minor demo hike, the network still would have won Sunday thanks to "Undercover Boss," "The Amazing Race" and more.
Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.6 rating, beating FOX's 2.1 rating in the key demographic. NBC was a close third with a 2.0 rating, with ABC's 1.9 rating right behind in fourth.
Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 11.19 million viewers to go with a 6.7 rating/11 share. ABC was second with a 4.6/7 and just under 7.2 million viewers. NBC's 3.8/6 and 6 million viewers beat the 2.5/4 and 4.34 million viewers for FOX.
7 p.m. - The Masters ran just under 15 minutes into the 7 p.m. hour and boosted CBS' "60 Minutes" to 13.1 million viewers and a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49.

8 p.m. - CBS stayed on top in the 8 p.m. hour with "The Amazing Race" (and a bit of "60 Minutes" in much of the country), which averaged 10.725 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49. ABC's "Secret Millionaire" is slipping, averaging 9.14 million viewers and a 2.3 demo rating. FOX's new episodes of "The Simpsons" and "Bob's Burgers" averaged just under 4.5 million viewers and a 2.1 demo rating for third, beating the 3.48 million viewers and 1.2 demo rating for NBC's "America's Next Great Restaurant."
