The effects of Daylight Savings Time continues to affect numbers for some of Sunday’s popular shows, but ABC remained on top among young adults with a two-hour “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and a repeat “Grey’s Anatomy.”

According to preliminary nationals from Nielsen, “Grey’s Anatomy” (5.9 rating/15 share in adults 18-49, 13.6 million viewers overall) was the night’s top program in demos, building on its lead-in from “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” (5.3/14 in 18-49, 13 million viewers overall), which aired from 8 to 10.

Numbers are murky for CBS, whose coverage of golf’s The Masters aired until about 7:30 p.m. in much of the country. Net’s “Cold Case” is expected to come in at about a 3.1/8 in adults 18-49 and 13.3 million viewers overall, while original movie “Covert One: The Hades Factor” fizzled with roughly a 2.3/5 in 18-49 and 8.2 million viewers overall.

The Masters averaged a 9 household rating/19 share in Nielsen’s metered-markets, down 13% from last year’s strong 10.3/21 for a one-hole playoff but up 23% from two years ago (7.3/18).

Fox was paced by “The Simpsons” (4.1/11 in 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall) and “Family Guy” (4.1/10 in 18-49, 7.9 million viewers overall), NBC by “Crossing Jordan” (3.3/8 in 18-49, 11.3 million viewers overall). Also for the Peacock, “West Wing” remained in fourth place at 8 but delivered its best scores in about five months.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: ABC, 4.8/13; CBS, 3/8; Fox, 2.9/8; NBC, 2.5/7; WB, .9/2.

In total viewers: CBS, 12.1 million; ABC, 11.8 million; NBC, 9.2 million; Fox, 5.9 million; WB, 2.2 million.
