TV Ratings: Sunday Night Football Eyes 2-Month Audience Low

Ratings Sunday Night Football

In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s Sunday Night Football matchup between the Brown and Giants averaged 12.9 million total viewers and a 3.4 demo rating, down 8 and 17 percent from last week‘s fast nationals to mark its smallest numbers since Oct. 26 and Oct. 19, respectively.

That said, it of course dominated Sunday in both measures.


ABC | The Sound of Music averaged 4 mil and a 0.6.

CBS | 60 Minutes was Sunday’s most-watched/top-rated non-sports program, with 10.2 million viewers and a 1.4 rating. The Garth and Trisha holiday special drew 5.2 mil/0.5, while A Home for the Holidays did 2.7 mil/0.2.

THE CW | The Outpost (330K/0.1) ticked up.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
