TV Ratings Report: How Far Did Once Upon a Time Fall?

at .  Updated at .

Due to a long football overrun and subsequent delay, CBS' Sunday night did not fare very well this week.

Madam Secretary (9.1 million viewers/1.1 rating among 18-49-year old) fell by 27 percent among young adults, while The Good Wife (7.4 million/1.0) and CSI: Cyber (5.1 million/.7) both slipped 16 percent among total viewers.

But Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 4 couldn't really blame the NFL for its poor showing.

The ABC drama ducked under 5 million total viewers for the first time ever, though it did earn a 1.6 rating. Elsewhere on the network, Blood and Oil (3.5 million/.9) is somehow still around, while Quantico (5.2 million/1.6) remained steady.

On Fox, The Simpsons (3.6 million/1.6) and Bob’s Burgers (2.2 million/1.0) ticked up a notch, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2.6 million/1.2) and Last Man on Earth (2.3 million/1.1) both fell by a tenth.
