Early Sunday Ratings: Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, Simpsons, Family Guy, Cleveland Show Premieres

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Here are the early metered market household ratings (not adults 18-49 ratings), and their change from last year when available (via Marc Berman/Mediaweek)

Update: Metered market results not comparable to last season’s premieres. These are Live+Same Day ratings, through the end of 2009 Nielsen was still providing Live Only ratings for metered markets. I have removed the comparisons to last season’s numbers.

The fast affiliate overnight ratings for Sunday are now available.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition: 4.8 HH rating

Desperate Housewives: 9.2 HH rating

Brothers & Sisters: 7.0 HH rating

The Simpsons: 5.1 HH rating

The Cleveland Show: 4.2 HH rating

Family Guy: 6.0 HH rating

Because of the NFL overrun, CBS metered market household ratings are a (likely to be substantially revised) jumble, but here they are:

7:00 p.m. – Football: 14.7/26 (#1)
7:30 p.m. – Football: 15.1/26 (#1) / 60 Minutes (season premiere): 10.4/17 (#1)
8:00 p.m. – 60 Minutes (season premiere): 10.5/17 (#1)
8:30 p.m. – 60 Minutes (season premiere): 10.5/16 (#2) / The Amazing Race (season premiere): 8.2/12 (#2)
9:00 p.m. – The Amazing Race (season premiere): 7.1/10 (#3)
9:30 p.m. – The Amazing Race (season premiere): 7.0/10 (#3)
10:00 p.m. – The Amazing Race (season premiere): 7.8/12 (#2) / Undercover Boss (season premiere): 6.7/10 (#3)
10:30 p.m. – Undercover Boss (season premiere): 7.2/12 (#2)

NBC ratings face the same revision likelihood as CBS’:

Sunday Night Football: 12.9 HH rating from 8:30-11pm

Sunday Night Football (NBC): New York Jets at Miami
8:30 p.m.: 12.1/19 (#1)
9:00 p.m.: 13.3/20 (#1)
9:30 p.m.: 13.3/20 (#1)
10:00 p.m.: 12.9/20 (#1)
10:30 p.m.: 13.1/21 (#1)
