Ratings: “Quantico” Sinks This Week; ABC’s Other Sunday Shows Also Slip

Facing high-profile competition from the last half-hour of “The Walking Dead,” what would be the final game of the 2015 World Series, and the Packers vs. Broncos football game, ABC’s “Quantico” suffered substantial losses in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Sunday’s episode, which was the series’ sixth broadcast, drew a deflated 1.2 adults 18-49 rating with 4.024 million total viewers.

Both numbers trail those of the previous week’s broadcast, which posted a 1.5 rating and reached 5.105 million viewers.

Like that episode, “Quantico” was ABC’s #2 Sunday program in adults 18-49 (beneath “Once Upon A Time”) and ABC’s #3 Sunday show in total viewers (beneath “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and “OUAT”).

ABC’s full Sunday lineup:

America’s Funniest Home Videos: 1.0 with 4.919 million (versus a 1.1 with 5.338 million last week)
Once Upon A Time: 1.5 with 4.818 million (versus a 1.6 with 5.122 million last week)
Blood & Oil: 0.8 with 3.234 million (versus a 0.9 with 3.768 million last week)
