NBC scored its second straight across-the-board ratings win in the week of Nov. 13. Not coincidentally, it was also the second week the network had two NFL games in primetime.

“Sunday Night Football” (7.0 rating in adults 18-49, 21.06 million viewers) and “Thursday Night Football” (4.2, 13.51 million) ranked first and second in both the 18-49 demo and total viewers for the week.

“This Is Us” and “The Big Bang Theory” had the highest 18-49 rating among non-sports shows, tying for fourth overall at 2.6. “Big Bang” was also the top entertainment show in viewers with 13.44 million.

Here are the network standings for the week of Nov. 13-19 and the season so far.
