Though America’s Funniest Videos and 60 Minutes return for what seems like their 75th seasons, in the fall this hour belongs to football in more ways than one.
Sunday Nights 7pm-8pm:
|America’s Funniest Home Videos|
|Football Night in America|
The biggest factors for this hour are which network, FOX or CBS, has the national doubleheader NFL game and how much of that game runs over into the 7pm hour on the east coast. Depending on the teams and game score, even a little bit of overrun can go a long way and play a big role in who wins not just the hour but the whole night.
Even if there’s no overrun, whether CBS has the national doubleheader game makes a big difference for 60 Minutes’ ratings.
Who Wins? During football season look for it to go back and forth between FOX and CBS.
