Facing Sunday Night Football (Bear-Packers) on NBC and another big NFL overrun on Fox (Giants-Seahawks), ABC beat its Sunday non-sports competition on CBS by 14% in Adults 18-49 (1.6/4 vs. 1.4/4). The network was up from the same night last November (5.6 million and 1.4/4 on 11/10/13) in Total Viewers (+7%) and Adults 18-49 (+14%). ABC's Once Upon A Time (60,302 tweets) and Revenge (24,232 tweets) were the most-social entertainment broadcasts on Sunday, respectively.

At 8 p.m., Once Upon A Time took second to Sunday Night Football in the hour among Adults 18-49 (2.5/7), beating Fox’s NFL-fueled comedies (The Simpsons/Brooklyn Nine-Nine = 2.4/6) and CBS' Madam Secretary (1.4/4). Once Upon A Time grew from its year-ago telecast for the 7th straight week in Adults 18-49 (+19% - 2.1/5 on 11/10/13) and season to date, the ABC drama is up 13% over the same point last year.

At 9 p.m., Resurrection held steady with ABC's year-ago telecast of Revenge in the hour in Adults 18-49 (1.2/3 vs. 1.3/3).

Building on its lead-in during the 10 o'clock hour, Revenge gained for the 2nd week in viewers (+11% - 5.2 million vs. 4.7 million) and young adults (+8% - 1.3/4 vs. 1.2/4), drawing its biggest audience this season and equaling a season high with Adults 18-49. In addition, Revenge delivered substantial time period improvement for ABC (3.2 million and 0.8/2 on 11/10/13), growing its hour year to year by 2.0 million viewers and by 63% in Adults 18-49.
