It was a big week for “Sunday Night Football,” as NBC’s broadcast of the Patriots vs. Packers game posted an early 6.7 rating in adults 18-49 – up significantly from “SNF’s” 4.0 preliminary last week – and will likely adjust up to a season high in the finals tomorrow morning.

Pending updates, a late afternoon “NFL Overrun” (5.8) boosted “The Simpsons” to a season high 1.9 on FOX, and “Bob’s Burgers” (1.3) tied its season high as well. “Family Guy” (1.1) and “REL” (0.6) matched their previous episodes.

Elsewhere, ABC’s “Mickey’s 90th Spectacular” special posted a 1.0 average, making it the network’s best 8-10 p.m. Sunday night performance of the season so far. Not even the “Mickey” special could help “The Alec Baldwin Show” though, which stayed low with yet another 0.3.

On CBS, “God Friended Me” ticked up from a 0.7 to a 0.8. “NCIS: Los Angeles” went the other way, falling a tenth to a 0.7, while “Madam Secretary” maintained a 0.6. The CW’s “Supergirl” (0.4) and “Charmed” (0.3) both stayed steady.

Definitions:
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.
