Game, set, match: Roger Federer just served up a new series low in ratings for “Running Wild With Bear Grylls.” It certainly didn’t help that NBC shifted the wilderness survival show to a self-starter at 7 p.m. on Sunday.
Either way, ABC won another Sunday — last night was the broadcast network’s sixth straight end-of-weekend victory in the key ratings demographic, which tallies adults 18-49.
CBS finished as the evening’s outright runner-up, NBC settled for third across primetime.
