Repeats of crime dramas gave CBS an overall ratings win Sunday, but FOX's coverage of NASCAR took the checkered flag among adults 18-49.
CBS averaged a 5.2 rating/10 share in primetime, holding off FOX's 4.7/9 (FOX's numbers may change due to its live race coverage). ABC finished third at 2.7/5. NBC, 2.6/5, was fourth, and The CW came in fifth with a 0.9/2.
FOX was the clear winner in the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.8 rating. CBS, 1.6, took second, followed by ABC at 1.4. Neither NBC nor The CW cracked the 1.0 mark.
CBS' "60 Minutes" won the 7 o'clock hour with a 4.7/10. FOX's broadcast of NASCAR's Coca-Cola 600 drew a 4.3/9 for the hour. "Dateline," 3.0/6, was third for NBC, beating out "America's Funniest Home Videos" on ABC. The CW went with a "7th Heaven" rerun.
The Coca-Cola 600 moved into first at 8 p.m. with a 4.5/9 on FOX. A "Cold Case" repeat on CBS was not far behind at 4.3/9. A second hour of "Dateline" kept NBC in third. ABC got a 3.2/6 from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." A "Smallville" repeat on The CW averaged 0.9/2.
At 9 p.m., CBS regained the lead with another episode of "Cold Case," 5.9/11. FOX's race coverage earned a 5.0/10. A "Desperate Housewives" repeat on ABC posted a 2.5/5, good enough to beat a "Friday Night Lights" rerun on NBC and "Supernatural" on The CW.
"Without a Trace" scored a 6.1/12 for CBS at 10 p.m. NASCAR held steady at 5.0/9 for FOX. Repeats of ABC's "Brothers and Sisters" and NBC's "Law & Order: SVU" tied for third.
