CBS reality vet “Survivor” wrapped its 13th edition with solid numbers Sunday night, while ABC did pretty well with the network premiere of “The Santa Clause 2.”

From 8 to roughly 10:05 p.m., the conclusion of “Survivor: Cook Islands” is expected to average about a 5.9 rating/14 share in adults 18-49 and nearly 17 million viewers overall — winning its time period in most key categories. The 5.9 rating in the demo reps a roughly 23% decline from the 7.7 for the “Survivor: Guatemala” finale in December 2005, and a roughly 5% falloff from the “Survivor: Panama” conclusion last May. The 55-minute “Survivor: Cook Islands Reunion” should come in with about a 4.8/12 in 18-49 and nearly 13 million viewers overall.

At ABC, the Tim Allen pic “Santa Clause 2” pulled in a 4.6/11 in adults 18-49 and 13.7 million viewers overall from 8 to 10, making it one of the top-rated theatricals in recent seasons. It peaked with 15.6 million viewers in the 9:30 half-hour.

Numbers for the NFL game between the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs on NBC are murky, but the contest is expected to average roughly a 5.6/14 in adults 18-49 and 14 million viewers overall.

And Fox was paced by original episodes of “Family Guy” (4.5/10 in 18-49, 8.8 million viewers overall) and “The Simpsons” (4.4/11 in 18-49, 9.0 million viewers overall). Net got the night off to a good start with roughly a 7 rating in 18-49 for the opening half-hour of primetime with the conclusion of the Philadelphia Eagles-New York Giants NFL game.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: CBS, 4.7/12; Fox, 4.4/11; NBC, 4.3/11; ABC, 3.6/9; Univision, 1.3/3; CW, 0.6/2.

In total viewers: CBS, 15.1 million; NBC, 11.4 million; ABC, 10.7 million; Fox, 9.7 million; Univision, 2.8 million; CW, 1.7 million
