God Friended Me ended on Apr. 14 with its lowest ratings for the season. Meanwhile, American Idol ticked up and Good Girls remained steady. Here are the Sunday TV ratings for the week.

In a week that saw a lot of shows air reruns, it wasn’t good news for all. One, in particular, had disappointing news. God Friended Me ended its first season with its lowest ratings to date. Meanwhile, American Idol ticked up and Good Girls remained steady. Here’s a full look at the Sunday TV ratings and what they mean.

We’ll start with the bad news, and that is the 45% decrease in the demo God Friended Me faced for its Season 1 finale. It also saw a 14% decrease in the total audience, both of the metrics at season-low points. The only good thing to take away is that the show has already been renewed for a second season, which is good considering that shocking twist at the very end.

A reason for the dip could have been ABC’s American Idol seeing an upward tick in the views. The first night of voting saw a 25% increase in the demo and 17% increase in the total audience, both to four-week highs. They were the best ratings of the night between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. for primetime channels.

World of Dance also saw upward ticks, although smaller than its ABC competition. It saw almost a 1% increase in the audience and 7% increase in the demo.

Since FOX and The CW opted for reruns of their Sunday night programming, the only new show to start fresh at 9.m. was NCIS: Los Angeles, which also saw downward ticks. It lost 30% of its demo and 9% of its total audience. That downward tick continued for CBS with Madam Secretary, which also lost 33% of the demo but did remain steady in the total audience.

It does suggest that viewers just weren’t interested in CBS programming. However, the NCIS spin-off and Madam Secretary are both still waiting for decisions to be made on their fates.

Finishing off the 10 p.m. slot were Shark Tank and the newly renewed Good Girls. Both saw steady demos, while Shark Tank, which is also renewed, saw a 7% increase in the total audience. Good Girls pulled in an extra 1.5% in the views, which is still low but clearly good enough for Sunday TV ratings for NBC.
