TV Ratings: ‘The Simpsons’ Soars, ‘Batwoman’ Dips

Helped by a sizable NFL lead-in, “The Simpsons” aired its annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode to excellent numbers on Fox.

Homer, Marge and co. were provided the highest rated scripted show on Sunday night, scoring a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49 and around 5.7 million total viewers. The rest of Fox’s Sunday Animation Domination was steady, with “Bless The Harts” and “Bob’s Burgers” posting a 1.1 rating, and “Family Guy” rounding off the night with a 1.2.

Meanwhile on The CW, “Batwoman” dipped a little from a 0.35 to a 0.3 this time around, shedding around 200,000 total viewers to end up with 1.2 million. “Supergirl” was also down in the 9 p.m. slot, posting a 0.2 rating and 900,000 total viewers.

On ABC, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” came in at a 0.7 rating and just under 5 million total viewers, followed by Tiffany Haddish’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” which dipped 20% on last week to a 0.6 rating. “Shark Tank” and “The Rookie” both also scored a 0.6.

“60 Minutes” once again led CBS’ Sunday night lineup with a 0.8 rating and 8 million total viewers (the highest non-football total on the night). “God Friended Me” came in at a 0.6, followed by “NCIS: Los Angeles” with a 0.7 and “Madam Secretary” with a season low 0.4.

On NBC, “Sunday Night Football” garnered approximately 18.8 total viewers in the fast national ratings, up on the slightly disappointing tally of the last two weeks. As always with the fast national numbers, that figure is subject to adjustments and will likely tick up later in the day.
