bbt-weekly-ratings-dec-17-15

“Sunday Night Football” was down 0.9 in adults 18-49 from week to week, but in a week light on original programming, its 6.1 rating was more than enough to secure the No.1 ranking.

“The Big Bang Theory” (4.1) hit a five-episode high for CBS to finish second (and was also second in viewers behind “SNF”). CBS was the only network to run a mostly original lineup, so it dominates both the 18-49 and viewer rankings. “The Voice” took third and sixth in 18-49 for NBC, with a recap show also making the Top 15.
