Ratings: ‘Elementary’ season 4 rises; ‘The Good Wife,’ ‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘Quantico’ steady

If there is a word that we would use more than any other to describe the ratings landscape from Sunday night’s new episode, it would be “boring.” Then again, this is the same word that we would use for the most part to describe the entire landscape the past few weeks on the night.

The good news – While “The Good Wife” was pretty steady with a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic, its total viewer count (9.1 million) is one of the biggest figures of the season. That’s nice, given that the show is walking off into the sunset in a matter of days now.

Meanwhile, “Elementary” (0.8) posted at least some improvement, and for shows like “Once Upon a Time” and “Quantico,” they posted marginal, practically unnoticeable, gains with a 1.2 and 1.0 rating, respectively. These three shows have all bee renewed, so there’s really not too much to worry about here.

Also, “The Carmichael Show” surged to a 1.0, which we have to assume is a direct result of there being a new episode of “Little Big Shots” on before it.

The bad news – Speaking of “Little Big Shots,” this show went from a surefire hit to a relative fad pretty quickly. While it still won the night, a 1.6 rating is far less impressive than the big numbers it was getting a little bit earlier this season.

Elsewhere, the only other “bad” news we can really report on is “The Family” (0.8) not necessarily surging more in the ratings after rising for many weeks. Still, it’s reasonably steady.
