A heart-stopping ending to an NFL playoff game carried FOX to big ratings Sunday night.
The primetime portion of Minnesota’s last-second win over New Orleans drew more than 34 million viewers, pending updates, and helped FOX’s primetime lineup to season highs (again, pending updates). “The Simpsons” is currently at a 3.5 rating among adults 18-49, “Bob’s Burgers” a 2.2, “Family Guy’s” 300th episode a 1.7 and “The Last Man on Earth” a 1.3.
ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.2) and “Shark Tank” (1.3 and 1.2) had another solid night. “AFV” was down from last week’s season-high 1.4; the 9 p.m. “Shark Tank” was down a tenth of a point, but the 10 p.m. episode was up a tenth.
On CBS, the finale of “Wisdom of the Crowd” was even with last week’s 0.7. “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.0) and “Madam Secretary” (0.7) were each up a tenth.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||5.6/19||1.1/4||0.8/3||0.6/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||17.28||5.05||7.39||3.37|
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.
