Football games and specials dominate the weekly broadcast ratings chart now that the networks have started to rest some of their regular series until the new year. NFL-related telecasts hold the Top 3 spots in both adults 18-49 and viewers, and FOX’s coverage of the Big Ten championship game made the Top 10 in both measures.

“Empire’s” fall finale (4.5) was the top regular series in adults 18-49. “The Voice’s” Monday show (12.56 million) led regular series in viewers. “The Wiz Live” was the biggest draw among a number of specials in both measures.
