This is the time period's best delivery with a regularly scheduled program since Feb. 20, 2005 in both households and viewers (CBS SUNDAY MOVIE "Stone Cold"), 11/6/05 in adults 18-49 (CBS SUNDAY MOVIE "Category 7: End of the World") and 11/14/04 in adults 25-54 (CBS SUNDAY MOVIE "Category 6: Day of Destruction").

WITHOUT A TRACE topped the premiere of "Brothers and Sisters" in viewers by +8% (17.36m vs. 16.10m).

At 9:00 PM, the fourth season premiere of COLD CASE (P) was second in households (9.7/14) and viewers (15.91m) while averaging 5.3/11 in adults 25-54 and 4.0/09 in adults 18-49, marking its best demographic ratings for a season premiere.

Compared to last year's premiere (on the same night last year at 8:53PM), COLD CASE was up +10% in households (from 8.8/13), +20% in adults 25-54 (from 4.4/09), +29% in adults 18-49 (from 3.1/07) and added +2.30m viewers (from 13.61m, +17%). This is the best delivery for a first run episode of COLD CASE since Jan. 29, 2006 in both households and viewers, Jan. 8, 2006 in adults 25-54 and March 26, 2006 in adults 18-49.

Compared to last week's initial broadcast, the 8:00 PM time period premiere of THE AMAZING RACE 10 retained 96% of its adults 25-54 delivery (4.4/10 vs. 4.6/10) , 90% of adults 18-49 performance (3.5/09 vs. 3.9/09) and built in both households (+5%, 6.6/10 from 6.3/10) and viewers (+7%, 10.85m from 10.13m or +720,000 viewers).

For the night, CBS posted its highest rated Sunday with regularly scheduled programming in adults 18-49 (3.6/09), adults 25-54 (4.9/11) and viewers (14.09m) since November 27, 2005 ("60 Minutes," "Cold Case" and "Silver Bells").
