Due to the nature of live  programming the ratings for NBC (NFL Football), & FOX(Football Overruns)  are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. See below for more information on these Fast Affiliate Ratings.

NBC was number one among adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On NBC, Sunday Night Football (Texans/Bears) earned a preliminary 7.0 adults 18-49 rating from 8:30-11:00PM, down 4%  from last week's 7.3 rating.

The start times of FOX's animated shows were delayed about 20 minutes due to football overrun, rendering their preliminary ratings meaningless. The final numbers for the programs, including the 200th episode of Family Guy will be available tomorrow.

On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos earned a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, down 18%  from  last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Once Upon A Time garnered a  series low 2.7down 23% from last week's 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were way too optimistic, probably because you did not anticipate  FOX’s football game running way over. Revenge scored a season low 2.4, down 11% from last week's 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. 666 Park Avenue scored a 1.3 among adults 18-49 rating, matching  last week’s series low.

On CBS, 60 Minutes earned a 1.7, down 50% from last week's 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. The Amazing Race scored a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, down 8%  from last week's 2.6. The Good Wife tied last week's series-low 1.7 adults 18-49. The Mentalist matched last week's 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Definitions:

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live baseball game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

    I’m one of the OUAT fans that isn’t as excited by this season as I was last. I know a lot of people that feel the same way. A lot of friends that refused to miss it last season seem to be fine with not watching it live this season. I watched about 10 minutes of last night’s episode. What I did watch I found myself bored and turned it. I’ve felt that way about many of the episodes this season. The show just doesn’t seem to have the appeal it had last season.

  • john

    I still like OUAT, but I watch it on-demand. I just dont have the need to see it live this year.

    @jessica
    I actually find it troubling that people wish for TV shows to get canceled. Not only are you wishing for people who enjoy something to be deprived of it simply because you don’t like it, but you’re also wishing for hundreds of people _to be out of work_ simply because you don’t like something. Pardon my French, but that’s really s****y

    If TV shows don’t get canceled, then all of the people hoping to find work by having new shows make it to series are left without jobs.

    It’s pretty $#*!ty to wish for hundreds of people to remain unemployed simply because you don’t understand how the industry works.

  • Joe

    noooo OUAT thats bad i am going to kill my self

  • Luke

    Family Guy wasn’t even airing it’s 200th episode last night. It was the 192nd episode. WTF.

    My be you should get high before it lol

    Once Upon a Time was Highest scripted show last night because It ll be adjusted up and beat the sipmsons

  • Melissa

    Let me start by saying that while I love Once Upon a Time, last week’s episode was horrible, so that is probably why this week is significantly down. All the Fan Excuse Bingo is ridiculous – no, the episode wasn’t down due to warm weather in the East Coast. I was surprised by the fall of 60 Minutes, though pleased with the stability of 666 Park Avenue, and the fact that Revenge was able to pull a 2.4 out of a 2.7.

    @THE OLD MAN

    Last I checked OUAT was ABC’s #1 scripted drama. How things change overnight! Hope it makes it to January at this rate.

    Incorrect information. ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy has registered as the #1 drama on television every week except the last, and since Once Upon a Time got a 2.7 last night, Grey’s Anatomy (3.3) is the #1 drama on television this week as well. However, I don’t think you need to worry about Once Upon a Time being cancelled; a 2.7 is not in danger territory, and I doubt the show will continue to fall.

  • Mark Wilkins

    TWD is the #1 drama because I’m pretty sure it would do better then a 3.3 when we see the cable tv ratings

  • Phil

    I watched Animation Domination as usual. I would like to see how the FG episode did in the final numbers.

  • DW

    TWD didn’t do well. AMC didn’t put a press release out for it.

  • Ultima

    @Luke
    Family Guy wasn’t even airing it’s 200th episode last night. It was the 192nd episode. WTF.

    AACX04 “Yug Ylimaf” was the 200th Family Guy episode that was produced.

    The eight episodes that make up the difference between 192 and 200 are the four two-part specials (Star Wars trilogy and “Road to the North Pole”), the original pilot episode, the unaired episode “Partial Terms of Endearment” and two episodes from this season that haven’t aired yet (AACX02 and AACX03).

    REVENGE insists on having guys with accents / difficult to hear.

    First it was Declan, then Nolan, Ashley, Takeda, Amanda, now Aiden whats his
    name.

    NOW it’s Aiden and Nolan.

    Ashley and Amanda have improved, but having more than one person with an accent on a show is irritating.

    Nolan is difficult to hear.

    We can barely focus with most of tha cast mumbling, including Em’s mom and Conrad. Not to mention Em Van Camp herself.

    The reason Mad Stowe stands out is because she SPEAKS UP!

    Juste PLEASE rid of Aiden and Nooooolan.

  • Daryl

    That Red Riding hood episode was awful — people who missed that one were smart.

  • pal

    Meh I bet massive amount of adjustments are coming yet again due to football…been this way every week now…

  • John A

    Whats so hard understanding the actors accents in Revenge? I can understand them. Turn up your volume.

  • Danny

    The reason everything is low is that most Americans are football sports fans so scripted TV is always low when competing with those. Personally I hate sports. I don’t get how anyone can choose that Once Upon a Lame-O show. Max must be a sexually repressed 5 year old with mental problems.

  • scifi

    People got started to understand that OUT is a bad show.

  • Melissa

    @Mark Wilkins

    TWD is the #1 drama because I’m pretty sure it would do better then a 3.3 when we see the cable tv ratings

    Ah, correct. I meant to say Grey’s Anatomy is the #1 network television drama.

  • DeLaRoca

    An episode centered around Jennifer Morrison’s character couldn’t do better. They better get rid of Emma. Episodes Emma free make the best numbers

  • Alex

    If ever there was a case for time-shifting playing a factor in ratings, OUAT is it. With the game running overtime, you’ll probably find a good chunk of that 23% or whatever will be made up for in the DVR numbers later.
