Final Live +3 viewer averages for 2015-16: NFL, ‘NCIS’ remain on top

ncis-weekly-ratings-nov-2-8-15

The final The final Live +3 ratings for 2015-16 are now locked in, and the viewer chart features the same shows at the top as those in the same-day rankings, just in a slightly different order.

“Sunday Night Football” remains No. 1 with 21.38 million viewers, a scant 81,000 more than its same-day number (which makes sense, since live sports telecasts don’t get DVR’d that much). “NCIS” (19.58 million) and “The Big Bang Theory” (19.49 million) moved ahead of “Thursday Night Football” (17.12 million) into second and third.
