NFL football returned and the Thursday and Sunday game coverage on NBC (plus the OT on FOX) dominated the weekly broadcast charts taking all the top 5 spots and 7 out of the top 10 spots both with adults 18-49 and total viewers.

Sunday night's game was the most-watched Sunday Night Football game ever, and the combined viewing between Thursday and Sunday was the best since 2002.

America's Got Talent was pushed to 8th with adults 18-49 and seventh with total viewers.  A rerun of The Simpsons on Sunday night was the top scripted show with adults 18-49, and a rerun of NCIS was the top scripted show among viewers of all ages.
