resurrection ep 2 ratings TV ratings: 'Believe' tumbles Sunday while 'Resurrection' stays strongFast National ratings for Sunday, March 16, 2014

Episode 2 of NBC’s “Believe” took a ratings hit in its regular time-period debut, falling more than a point in adults 18-49 without an original “Voice” as a lead-in (NBC ran a clip show Sunday). NBC’s other new Sunday show, “Crisis,” also debuted to mediocre numbers, although it took second in its hour in the 18-49 demo.

ABC’s “Resurrection,” on the other hand, remained pretty solid. It came down from its premiere last week but was still easily the top network show of the night among adults 18-49. “Once Upon a Time” was steady as well. “Cosmos” also held up in its second week on FOX. “The Good Wife” was steady (but low) for CBS, and “The Mentalist” fell from last week.

CBS led the viewer race Sunday with 9.1 million and a 5.8 rating/9 share in households. ABC (7.65 million, 4.6/7) came in second. NBC took third with 5.9 million viewers and a 3.7/6, and FOX (3.9 million, 2.3/4) trailed.

ABC grabbed the top spot among adults 18-49 with a 2.1 rating. FOX finished second with a 1.7, and CBS and NBC tied for third at 1.5.
