“Sunday Night Football” may have fallen back down from its near season high numbers, but it still easily led the broadcast charts for the week of Nov. 5.

NBC’s broadcast of the Cowboys vs. Eagles game won the week with a 6.5 rating in adults 18-49 – down from the 7.4 that the previous week’s “SNF” game had scored – and 20.10 million viewers. FOX’s “Thursday Night Football” broadcast (4.8, 14.80 million) came second in both demos, while CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” was the week’s highest-rated (2.3) and most-watched (12.85 million) scripted show.

In the network standings, NBC came first in both viewers (7.09 million) and adults 18-49 (1.8). FOX (1.5) came second in the demo, followed by CBS (1.1) and ABC (0.9) in third and fourth.

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