TV Ratings Broadcast Top 25: ‘Sunday Night Football,’ ‘Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’ Top Week 11 Among Adults 18-49

Sunday Night Football (Saints/Lions) topped the weekly charts with both adults 18-49 and total viewers. The picky can point out that Fox’s NFL post game show The OT was higher, but at only 12 minutes long I didn’t think it comparable. The Victoria Secret Fashion Show was the week’s top non-sports show with adults 18-49, while NCIS was the top non-sports show with total viewers.
