The series benefited from an American Idol lead-in. The true test will be whether it can hold these ratings in the coming weeks. 

Idol managed to 7.8 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating, down slightly from its Sunday debut. 

Elsewhere, Survivor was steady with 7.3 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating.

The World's Best followed with 2.9 million viewers and a 0.6 rating, up two-tenths week-to-week. 

CBS would have been wise to save this series for the summer and air The Amazing Race out of Survivor. 

The CW's rotation of Riverdale (1 million total viewers/0.3 rating) and All American (0.6 million total viewers/0.2 rating) were steady.
