Once Upon a TimeBetrayal and The Mentalist saw small bumps despite heavy competition from Sunday Night Football and the World Series.

Once opened ABC’s night with 7 million viewers and a 2.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up a tenth from last week. Betrayal (3.4 million, 1.0) also inched up a tenth and Revenge (5.6 million, 1.5) was flat.

9 bubble shows: Which will last?

The Mentalist (8.8 million, 1.3) ticked up a tenth as well from its series low last week, while The Amazing Race (8.2 million, 1.7) hit an all-time low and The Good Wife‘s game-changing episode (9.1 million, 1.4) was steady.

SNF (14.9 million, 5.6) dropped nearly 50 percent from last week’s hotly anticipated Broncos-Colts game, but still beat Game 4 of the World Series in the demo (15.4 million, 4.4).
