"A bump in ratings for ABC's two powerhouse dramas led the network to another Sunday win, while at NBC, a pair of specials failed to generate any Nielsen magic.
CBS grabbed the lead early with "60 Minutes" posting a 9.6/15 at 7 p.m. A late-ending NFL game and postgame show averaged 9.3/15 for FOX (the live broadcast means those numbers will change some in final nationals). "America's Funniest Home Videos" came in third for ABC. NBC's special "Penn & Teller: Off the Deep End" was stuck in fourth with a 3.6/6, beating only repeats of "Reba" on The WB.
"Cold Case" kept CBS on top at 8 p.m. with a strong 11.0/18. ABC moved up to second with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," 9.8/14. FOX was third with "The Simpsons," 6.6/10, and "The War at Home," 4.9/7. NBC's Penn & Teller special improved slightly. "Charmed" averaged 2.6/4 for The WB."
