There were sluggish ratings all around on the penultimate Sunday of the television season, though ABC’s “Revenge” ended its run on an uptick and CBS’ “The Good Wife” rose to a four-month high as its wrapped its season.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Revenge” averaged a 1.3 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million viewers overall in the 10 p.m. hour — up a tick from last week and matching the show’s best result since mid-November. Its demo rating equaled the combined total of timeslot rivals “Battle Creek” on CBS and “American Odyssey” on NBC.

Earlier for ABC, both “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.4/6 in 18-49, 5.9 million viewers overall) and the two-hour season finale of “Once Upon a Time” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall) were on par with last week. With an expected uptick to 1.8 in the nationals, “Once” will have delivered its top rating since March 22 — but down half a ratings point from its year-ago closer (2.3).

ABC was the No. 1 broadcaster on the night in adults 18-49, making it three straight Sundays on top during the November sweep.

At CBS, which dominated the night in total viewers, “60 Minutes” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 8.4 million viewers overall) was up 0.2 in 18-49 from last week, and a second airing at 9 (1.2/4 in 18-49, 8.8 million viewers overall) was also up 0.2 from last week’s season finale of “Madam Secretary.” That boost, and perhaps the lack of “Secrets & Lies” competition, seemed to help “The Good Wife” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 9.2 million viewers overall), which shot up 33% (0.3) from last week and was able to match its year-ago season finale. Closing out the night, “Battle Creek” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) was up a tick to match its top rating since March 15.

At Fox, encores of “The Simpsons” (0.5/2 in 18-49, 1.5 million viewers overall) and “Bob’s Burgers” (0.6/2 in 18-49, 1.5 million viewers overall) led into an original “Simpsons” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 2.8 million viewers overall), which was down a tenth from last week. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” held steady (1.2/4 in 18-49, 2.6 million viewers overall), and was followed by a repeat “Family Guy” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 2.6 million viewers overall) and an original “Bob’s Burgers” at a special time (1.2/3 in 18-49, 2.5 million viewers overall).

NBC’s night started with a golf overrun (1.4 in 18-49 from 7 to 8) and “Dateline” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 4.5 million viewers overall), with the newsmagazine on par with its two-hour average of last week. “A.D. The Bible Continues” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 4.5 million viewers overall) was down 0.2 to its low, while “American Odyssey” held at its low level (0.5/2 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: ABC, 1.5/5; CBS, 1.1/4; Fox, 1.0/3; NBC, 0.9/3; Univision and Telemundo, 0.5/2.

In total viewers: CBS, 8.2 million; ABC, 5.4 million; NBC, 4.6 million; Fox, 2.2 million; Telemundo, 1.4 million; Univision, 1.3 million.
