ABC's 'Millionaire' rules Sunday, but 'Big Brother,' '60 Minutes' help CBS win the night

ABC and CBS locked in a narrow ratings battle Sunday: The final evening of The Alphabet’s 10th anniversary Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? celebration was the most-watched program, but The Eye took the title for the evening with the one-two punch of 60 Minutes and Big Brother. ABC’s Shark Tank continued to grow its audience.
