TV Ratings: Fox Sunday Primetime Rises With NFL Assist

Fox’s Sunday primetime lineup got a healthy boost in the ratings thanks at least in part to the overrun of NFL football, according to Nielsen overnight data.

“The Simpsons” kicked things off, so to speak, with a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million viewers, up nearly 50 percent in the demo and nearly 70 percent in total viewers from last week. “Ghosted” drew a 1.3 and 3.3 million, up 35 percent in the demo and 40 percent in total viewers. “Family Guy” drew a 1.4 and 3.1 million, up over 30 percent in both measures. “Last Man on Earth” averaged a 0.9 and 2.2 million, up over 10 percent in both measures. It should be noted, however, that due to the nature of live sports, these numbers will likely be subject to greater than normal adjustment later today.

On NBC, “Sunday Night Football” is currently averaging a 4.2 and 13.6 million. Again, due to the nature of live sports, expect those numbers to change later today. In metered market households, the game averaged an 11.5 rating, up from a 9.6 last week.

For CBS, “60 Minutes” (1.2, 11 million) and “Wisdom of the Crowd” (0.8, 6.8 million) were down in both measures after getting a boost from football last week. “NCIS: Los Angeles” (0.9, 7.7 million) was even, while “Madam Secretary” (0.6, 6.6 million) was up slightly in total viewers.

On ABC, “The Toy Box” (0.5, 2.3 million) was up in the demo. “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.0, 5.2 million) and the 9 p.m. episode of “Shark Tank” (0.9, 4.2 million) were up in both measures. The episode of “Shark Tank” at 10 (0.8, 3.6 million) was up slightly in total viewers from last week’s 10 o’clock episode.

NBC won the night with a 4.9 and 14.2 million viewers. Fox was second in the demo with a 2.3 but third in total viewers with 6.2 million. CBS was third in the demo with a 0.9 but second in total viewers with 8 million. ABC was fourth overall with a 0.8 and 3.9 million.
