CBS got a boost to its Sunday TV ratings on Oct. 13. Other networks saw a mix. Here’s a look at the ratings for God Friended Me, Batwoman, and more.

FOX continued its Animation Domination on Oct. 13, but it wouldn’t quite dominate in the way hoped. CBS was the network with the strongest night off the back of Sunday Night Football. Here’s a look at how the networks performed in the Sunday TV ratings, with God Friended MeBatwomanThe Simpsons, and more.

TV Series Finale has a full look at the Live + Same Day ratings. CBS certainly benefitted from the NFL overrun, despite pushing programming back by 30 minutes. 60 Minutes enjoyed a 147% boost to the demo and 39% boost to the audience from the previous week, while God Friended Me was up 35% in the demo and 8% in the audience. In fact, God Friended Me had the highest demo and total audience out of all scripted programming.

The boosts to the demo for CBS continued with NCIS: Los Angeles and Madam Secretary. The only other scripted show to enjoy a boost to the demo was The Rookie, which saw a 1.6% increase despite a 7.5% decrease to the total audience to the previous episode.

All other shows saw decreases to both demo and total audience. This isn’t all that surprising considering some shows were into their third or fourth weeks. The biggest disappointment will be for The CW’s Batwoman. The second episode saw a 36% drop in the demo and 21% drop in the total audience.

Seeing a drop isn’t all that surprising between pilot and second episode. The 21% drop in the total audience is about standard. The36% is larger than many others and it will be disappointing for The CW.

The drop continued with Supergirl‘s Season 5 second episode. This wasn’t as large from the previous episode, seeing an 18% drop in the demo and 22% drop in the total audience.

FOX saw some of the biggest drops, withThe Simpsons losing 62% of both its demo and total audience, Bob’s Burgers losing 31% of its demo and 28% of its total audience, and Family Guy losing 25% and 21% of each respectively.

After enjoying a boost with its second episode last week, Bless the Harts saw a large dip. Both demo and total audience were down by 50%. Sunday night programming can be difficult to assess in the TV ratings because of Sunday Night Football. All networks will air games and the success of the games does often have a knock-on effect of the scripted programming following.
