Ratings: Sound of Music Hits 3-Year High; Jimmy and J.T. Bring Best-Rated SNL in Two Years
Elsewhere, NBC Sunday Night Football‘s coverage of the Bears/Eagles game did 16 mil and a 5.5, up 10 percent versus last week’s Bengals/Steelers fast nationals, in what was this NFL season’s most lopsided contest.
Rewinding a bit, Saturday Night Live‘s Jimmy Fallon/Justin Timberlake combo scored a 3.9 rating, the show’s best demo delivery in almost two years — since Charles Barkley/Kelly Clarkson, 1/7/2012, which benefited from a primetime NFL overrun. Subtracting out any such football inflations, it was SNL‘s best rating since Timberlake/Lady gaga circa May 2011.
