Make no mistake, ABC’s “Quantico” and “Secrets And Lies” did not post strong live+same-day ratings this week.

They did, however, outperform their previous broadcasts in adults 18-49 and total viewers.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “Quantico” drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and 2.75 million total viewers. The numbers top the 0.6 rating and 2.20 million viewer mark garnered by last week’s broadcast.

Lead-in “Secrets And Lies” posted a 0.7 and 3.14 million, besting last week’s 0.6/2.83 million.

Interestingly, the gains came despite increased competition from Sunday Night Football. They also came despite weakened lead-in support from “Once Upon A Time.”

While last week’s “OUAT” drew a 1.1 and 3.56 million viewers, this Sunday’s edition only managed a 0.9 and 3.37 million.

ABC’s night opened with “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.8, 4.45 million vs. 1.0, 5.77 million last week).
