In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s NFL-boosted The Simpsons led Sunday’s non-sports fare in the demo, while CBS’ 60 Minutes delivered the largest audience.
With NBC Sunday Night Football‘s Bengals-Ravens match-up down sharply from last week’s early numbers, averaging 12.5 million total viewers and a 3.5 demo rating…
CBS | Leading out of 60 Minutes (7.1 million viewers/0.5 rating), The Equalizer (6.7 mil/0.5) and East New York (5.5 mil/0.4) both dipped in the demo, though the latter built on its premiere audience.

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.
