    -Ratings Breakdown:
    It was all about football last night with the Philadelphia Eagles / Dallas Cowboys match-up on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” at an estimated 14.8 rating/24 share in the household overnights. Comparably, this was six percent above the 14.0/22 for Green Bay vs. Denver one week earlier, and that match-up translated into 23.01 million viewers and an 8.2 rating/22 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data. Results for any live sporting event, as always, are estimated.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was pre-game “Football Night in America” at a 2.0/ 3 at 7 p.m. (#4), a 6.1/10 at 7:30 p.m. (#2), and a 9.4/15 (#2) in the 8 p.m. half-hour.

    CBS also benefited by football, with a 36-minute primetime overrun at a whopping 17.9/30 in the household overnights in the 7 p.m. half-hour. Since six minutes were factored into the 7:30 p.m. half-hour on the East coast, all individual series results for CBS are estimated as follows:

    7:30 p.m. – “60 Minutes”: 11.6/18 (#1)
    8:30 p.m. – “Madam Secretary”: 8.0/12 (#2)
    9:30 p.m. – “The Good Wife”: 6.5/10 (#2)
    10:30 p.m. – “CSI: Cyber”: 4.4/ 8 (#2)

    Over at ABC, the network was at now typical Sunday overnight levels care of veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3: 3.5/ 5 at 7 p.m.), “Once Upon a Time” (#3: 2.9/ 4 at 8 p.m.), waiting-to-be-canceled “Blood & Oil” (#3: 2.4/ 4 at 9 p.m.) and “Quantico” (#3: 3.3/ 6 at 10 p.m.), which is waiting for a better time period. Comparably, overnight growth of 37 percent for “Quantico” out of “Blood & Oil” remains promising.

    Fox closed the night with its original combination of “Bob’s Burgers” (#4: 2.1/ 3), “The Simpsons” (#4: 2.4/ 4), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 2.0/ 3), “Family Guy” (#4: 2.0/ 3) and sophomore “The Last Man on Earth” (#4: 2.0/ 3) from 7:30-10 p.m.

  • About the Daily Ratings
    Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

    The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

    Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

    Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

    If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent
    Ratings FAQ.
