“Sunday Night Football” continued to dominate the broadcast charts for the week of Dec. 10.

The Eagles vs. Rams game gave NBC the win in adults 18-49 with a 5.4 rating, despite being down five-tenths from the week before’s “SNF” game. The “SNF” broadcast took the top spot in total viewers with 18.12 million as well. Outside of sports, though, ABC’s “Modern Family” and “The Conners” tied as the week’s highest-rated scripted shows with 1.4s, while CBS’ “NCIS” led in viewers with 12.28 million.

In the network standings, FOX (1.4) and NBC (1.4) tied for the win in 18-49, followed by CBS (1.0) in third and ABC (0.7) in fourth. CBS (7.20 million) did, however, win the week in viewers, with NBC (6.20 million) coming second.

Here are the network standings for last week and the season.
