A night full of animated repeats provided Fox with just enough audience to match ABC for top honors among viewers 18-49 in primetime Sunday.

CBS finished third in the demo but first in total viewers, thanks to the most-watched program of the night in both categories, “Big Brother,” on a night where cable grabbed attention with the season premiere of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and the launch of USA’s “Political Animals.”

Fox was second at 8 p.m. with back-to-back repeats of “The Simpsons” (1.6/5, 3.5 million for each), followed by a new episode of ABC’s “Secret Millionaire” (1.5/5, 5.6 million).

ABC topped the 7 p.m. hour with a repeat “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.2/4, 5.2 million), ahead of CBS’ “60 Minutes” (1.0/4, 2.1 million and Fox’s “American Dad” (0.8/3, 1.9 million) and “The Cleveland Show” (0.9/3, 2.2 million).

NBC finished fourth from 7 to 9 p.m. in the 18-49 demo even with a new episode of “Dateline NBC” (0.8/3, 5.2 million).

Fox emerged on top at 9 p.m. with a double shot of “Family Guy” (1.7/5, 3.8 million for the hour), ahead of the first half of ABC’s two-hour “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” (1.4/4, 4.1 million). With “America’s Got Talent” (1.0/3, 3.8 million), NBC jumped ahead of CBS, which aired “The Good Wife” (0.6/2, 4.0 million) and “The Mentalist” (0.6/2, 4.3 million).
