The fast national ratings for “Sunday Night Football” are at a season low, down a million viewers (to 11.67 million) and 0.3 (to 4.0) in adults 18-49 vs. last week’s preliminary numbers.
Where the previous game was depressed because it aired opposite the World Series, the blame for Sunday’s game likely falls on a lackluster matchup between two middling teams, the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins.
In the metered markets, “SNF” drew a 9.6 household rating, up slightly from 9.4 a week earlier.
The other networks were fairly steady. “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and the 9 p.m. “Shark Tank” (each 0.9) matched their most recent outings for ABC, although the 10 o’clock “Shark Tank” (0.7) was off two tenths of a point from the previous week.
“The Simpsons” (1.3), “Ghosted” (1.0) and “The Last Man on Earth” (0.8) all were even with their last episodes without an NFL lead-in on FOX. “Family Guy” slipped a couple tenths to 1.0. “Bob’s Burgers” is inflated at 1.6 due to late-ending NFL games in some markets but will probably settle around its 1.2 average.
At CBS, “Wisdom of the Crowd” (1.1) rebounded to match its number from two weeks ago after lat week’s World Series-induced low. “NCIS: Los Angeles” rose a tenth to 0.9, although that’s still a bit below its season average.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||3.6/12||1.9/7||1.2/4||0.7/3|
|Total Viewers (millions)||10.73||14.53||2.98||3.55|
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.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. 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.
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.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
