ABC’S SECRET MILLIONAIRE REMAINS HOT ON SUNDAY

March 14, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

ABC appears to have a solid new hit on Sundays with its new inspirational reality series, Secret Millionaire. In its second week, the show, which was cast off by Fox after so-so ratings in 2008, averaged 11.3 million viewers Sunday night — down just 10 percent from its premiere and winning the 8:00 p.m. hour, according to Nielsen Research. Particularly impressive is that it beat CBS’s long-running (no pun intended) hit The Amazing Race in that hour — although that show, too, continued to pull solid ratings, averaging 9.4 million viewers. CBS won every other hour of the night, however, with audiences that were substantially larger than the competition, with Undercover Boss taking honors as the most-watched show of the night with 11.7 million viewers.
