red widow premiere rtgs TV ratings: 'Celebrity Apprentice' way down and 'Red Widow' opens softly SundayFast National ratings for Sunday, March 3, 2013

The “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” premiere brought minor-league ratings to NBC on Sunday, falling by a couple million viewers and a full point among adults 18-49 compared to its premiere last year. ABC’s “Red Widow” drew decent viewer numbers, but its 18-49 numbers were pretty meager.

“Once Upon a Time” was also on the low side for ABC, as were “The Good Wife” and “The Mentalist” for CBS. It was a pretty weak night across the broadcast nets, as no one hit even the 2.0 mark in adults 18-49.

CBS led the night in viewers, averaging 9.8 million people and a 6.2 rating/10 share in households. ABC (6.9 million, 4.3/7) came in second, a couple million viewers ahead of NBC’s 4.9 million and 3.2/5. FOX drew 3.8 million viewers and a 2.1/3.

FOX and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49 at 1.8. ABC took third in the demographic with a 1.6, and NBC trailed with a 1.3.
