A late-afternoon NFL playoff game lifted FOX’s Sunday primetime shows all well above their season averages.
After the game and its post-show coverage spilled into primetime (10.7, 9.4), “The Simpsons” scored its highest-rated episode since Jan. 2015 with a 3.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.20 million viewers. “Bob’s Burgers” (2.2) and “Family Guy” (1.8) followed with similarly high ratings. The NFL boost even helped the season finale of “REL” to a 1.1, making it the show’s highest-rated episode since its NFL-boosted premiere (1.9).
It was an up night for ABC as well, as “America’s Funniest Home Videos” rose four-tenths week-to-week to a season high 1.4. “Shark Tank” also hit a new season high, up from its previous 0.9 to a 1.1.
On CBS, “God Friended Me” (0.9), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (0.9), and “Madam Secretary” (0.6) all matched their episodes from last Sunday. “60 Minutes,” however, slipped from a 0.8 to a 0.7.
Elsewhere, NBC aired a special broadcast of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” (0.6) from 7-10 p.m., before “Dateline” rounded out the night for the network with a 0.5. Meanwhile, The CW’s broadcast of this year’s Critic’s Choice Awards posted a 0.3 average with 1.51 million viewers, steady with the 2018 show.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.8/18||1.0/4||0.8/3||0.6/3||0.3/1|

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.
