All four shows in FOX's Sunday comedy line-up saw week-to-week gains in the demo.

Lead-out 'Bob's Burgers' (1.19, 2.91 million) was up 0.18, 'Rel' (0.62, 1.62 million), and 'Family Guy' (1.13, 2.66 million) ticked up 0.07.

ABC also saw a week of impressive rises. On Thursday, 'Station 19' (1.17, 5.91 million) rose 0.22 in the demo, 'Grey's Anatomy' (1.75, 7.3 million) ticked up 0.16, and 'How to Get Away with Murder' (0.76, 3.13 million) was up 0.10. Friday's 'Fresh Off the Boat' (0.74, 3.47 million) gained 0.16 but 'Speechless' (0.58, 2.6 million) managed only a 0.08 rise. Finally, on Sunday, 'Dancing with the Stars: Juniors' (0.71, 4.28 million) was up 0.13. NBC's 'Sunday Night Football' (5.86, 18.9 million) rose 0.24.

FOX's coverage of 'Thursday Night Football' (4.99, 16.89 million) saw the worst week-to-week declines, down 0.66. Among scripted series, CBS's 'God Friended Me' (0.80, 7.52 million) fell hard, down 0.25, and FOX's 'Last Man Standing' (1.13, 5.97 million) was not much better, down 0.17 week-to-week. CBS's 'Survivor' (1.45, 7.21 million) tumbled that same 0.17, and NBC's 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.80, 4 million) was down 0.13.

Finally, the 52nd annual 'CMA Awards' (2.15, 10.11 million) on ABC, lost a massive 1.1 in the 18-49 demo from last year (3.25, 14.27 million); however, the most of that decline was due to women 18-49, which dropped from a 4.1 rating last year to 2.5. Among men 18-49, the show lost only 0.7 year-to-year from 2.4 to 1.7.
