ABC and Fox tied (1.0/3) for the ratings lead on Sunday — ABC’s fifth first-place finish of the past six Sundays and besting NBC (0.9/3) by 11% and CBS (0.6/2) by 67%. ABC’s special Sunday The Bachelorette tied Fox’s returning Cosmos originals (as well as Fox’s Family Guy rerun) for first place in the demo with a 1.3/4, though for Bachelorette it was a 19% week-to-week decline and represented a series low, while Cosmos posted an 18% gain from its most recent telecast (22% in the younger 18-34 demo).
