TV Ratings 5/7/17: Once Down for Musical Episode, Last Man Ends Down, Lady Di Special Solid for ABC

Sunday night was a rather odd night for broadcast. Some shows were down a lot, some shows were up a lot, and a Princess Diana special absolutely crushed American Crime's ratings. Speaking of that Diana special, it pulled a very respectable 0.9, up from both Match Game's 0.8 and American Crime's 0.4. Even more impressive is that it pulled these ratings with a weaker Once Upon a Time as a lead-in. The highly anticipated and advertised Once Upon a Time musical episode was down from last week, at a 0.8. Once's lead-in, America's Funniest Home Videos, was down two tenths, but still was tied for #2 for the night. #1 was NBC's Little Big Shots, which itself took a steep three tenth fall. It's still doing very well for Sundays, but it's not the monster it once was. Chicago Justice and Shades of Blue were both affected by weaker lead-ins, with both down a tenth. Over on CBS, their bookends 60 Minutes and Elementary were both up. Over on Fox, Bob's Burgers had a great night, pulling a 0.9, improving on much of its post-DST ratings in the slot. Speaking of the rest of the lineup, The Simpsons continued to be strong, while Making History continued to be weak. The Last Man on Earth got the honor of airing two episodes directly out of Making History, and the result was a new series low.
