The move of the ABC Hamptons-based drama "Revenge" to Sunday nights did nothing to boost its ratings.

The sophomore season debut was a tenth of a point off last year's Wednesday night debut and had a rating of 3.2 in the key demographic of adults 18 to 49 years old.

It was followed by a new series -"666 Park Ave.," which lost some of that audience, getting only a 2.2 rating. The best showing of the night among scripted series went to "Once Upon a Time" which drew a 3.8 rating in the key demo.

Football on NBC continued to beat out scripted shows, getting an 8.1 rating with 20.6 million viewers .

On CBS,"The Amazing Race"saw a 17 percent drop in audience (2.5 rating), while "The Good Wife fell 18 percent (1.8 rating) and "The Mentalist," which moved to Sundays from Thursdays, fell 25 percent ( 2.1 rating).

On Fox, "Bob's Burgers" beat last year's premiere by 32 percent with a 2.5 rating. "The Simpsons" fell two tenths of a point (3.7 rating), "Family Guy" dropped 20 percent (3.3 rating) and "American Dad" dropped 17 percent ( 2.5 rating).
