ABC's two-hour "Bachelorette" special was weak outside of the series' normal Monday home, but still helped the network tie "Cosmos"-fueled FOX for the Sunday night crown among young viewers. Overall, CBS led the way with "60 Minutes," which was Sunday's most watched show.
Despite an admirable guerrilla promotional campaign from the show's creator and stars, canceled-but-beloved "Enlisted" failed to make even a small ripple in its return to primetime, coming in below a repeat of "American Dad." [The "Enlisted" demo number was steady with its most recent Friday airing back in March. But that's not exactly good news.]
There was better news, not that it matters, for NBC's canceled "Believe" and "Crisis," which were both up week-to-week.
On to the numbers...
Among adults 18-49, FOX and ABC averaged a 1.0 rating for Sunday night, tops in the key demographic. NBC's 0.9 key demo rating and the 0.6 key demo rating for CBS trailed.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 5.14 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/6 share for Sunday night, leading the way. NBC averaged an estimated 4.115 million viewers and a 2.5/4, compared to the 2.7/5 and 4.11 million viewers for ABC. FOX averaged an estimated 2.42 million viewers and a 1.4/3.

NBC's "America's Got Talent" encore averaged 3.43 million viewers and a 0.7 key demo rating for third. FOX followed with a new "Enlisted" (1.15 million and a 0.4 key demo rating) and an "American Dad" repeat (1.25 million and a 0.5 key demo).
