With its highest-rated game in several weeks, “Sunday Night Football” held onto the no. 1 spots in both the adults 18-49 and total viewers measures for the week of Oct. 8.

NBC’s broadcast of the Patriots vs. Chiefs game scored a 7.0 rating and 21.11 million viewers, up a whole point from the previous week’s “SNF” game. “This is Us” tied with “The Big Bang Theory” as the highest-rated scripted show of the week with matching 2.3s, while “Young Sheldon” (1.8) came second. Monday night’s “The Voice” (1.9) was the week’s no. 1 unscripted, non-sports broadcast.

In the network standings, after tying with FOX the week before, NBC beat all other networks this time in 18-49 (1.9) and in total viewers (7.84 million). FOX (1.6) came second in the demo, while CBS (7.25 million) was the second most-watched network.
