The Blast TV Renewal/Scorecard has been updated to reflect these ratings.

What happened to people watching television on Sundays? Once anchored by “Survivor” and the mighty “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” it’s now just headlined by reality television, aging CBS dramas, and the seventh season of “Desperate Housewives,” which hit a 7-year low last night with a 2.7 in the demo, and 8.8 million viewers. That’s way down from its season one days when it hit 15.0’s in the demo, and drew nearly 30 million viewers.

“Brothers and Sisters” made its case for why this will be the final season (according to Blast’s own TV Renewal/Cancellation Scorecard), drawing a series low 1.7 in the demo and just a hair more than 6 million viewers. The five-year old drama was last in its timeslot.

“Celebrity Apprentice” did well for NBC, averaging a 2.5 in the demo over two hours, one of the nets best performances of the week and top for the 10 pm hour.

“Family Guy” was strong, hitting a 3.0 for a new episode, while “The Cleveland Show” drew just a 2.3. Like most of Fox’s Sunday lineup, it’s been renewed next year. But the whole slate has been down, further raising the question, what happened to watching network television on Sunday?
