Little Big Shots (0.4, 3.08M) and The Wall (0.5, 3.08M) held steady while Good Girls (0.4, 1.80M) slipped to match series low.

Fox aired reruns of its animation block while the CW delivered encores of their superhero programming. At CBS, 60 Minutes (0.9, 9.86M) dropped a tenth in the demo but managed to be the most-watched program on Sunday.  The network also aired the special ACM Presents: Our Country (1.0, 7.73M).
