“Sunday Night Football” scored another across-the-board ratings win for the week of Dec. 7-13. The Patriots-Texans game on NBC scored a 7.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 20.99 million viewers, both of which were up from the previous week’s 6.7 and 19.19 million viewers.

“The Big Bang Theory” was the top show not related to the NFL. It scored a 3.8 in adults 18-49 to finish fourth, and its 15.27 million viewers were good for second overall.

This was the last week of the year in which every network had at least a few nights of originals. Reruns and specials will predominate for the remainder of 2015.
