Trio of Game Shows Lead ABC to Sunday Overnight Victory

CBS' Veteran '60 Minutes' Continues to Beat NBC's 'Megyn Kelly on Sunday'

SUNDAY, JUNE 18, 2017

What follows are the metered market household results by half-hour for Sunday, June 18, 2017:

Household Rating/Share
ABC: 3.2/ 6, CBS and Fox: 3.1/ 6 each, NBC: 1.7/ 3

Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:

Note: ABC aired game seven of The NBA Finals on the year-ago evening
NBC: +13, CBS: +11, Fox: + 3, ABC: -79

Ratings Breakdown:
ABC narrowly inched past CBS and Fox for dominance in the Sunday household overnights with its combination of a repeat of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#4: 2.3 rating/5 share), “Celebrity Family Feud” (#1: 4.1/ 8), recent entry “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome” (#1: 3.2/ 6) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (#1: 3.2/ 6). Compatible is clearly the word for the three game shows.

Tops for the night was coverage on Fox of the 2017 U.S. Open Golf Championship, which averaged a 5.0/11 in the household overnights from 7-8:30 p.m. But an 8:30-9:30 p.m. ET telecast of reality/competition “American Grit” fell off the charts at a mere 1.1/ 2 (#4). And that led into a 0.9/ 2 (#4) for a repeat of “Family Guy” at 9:30 p.m.

On NBC, week three of newsmagazine “Megyn Kelly on Sunday” (#3: 2.6/ 5) trailed a repeat of “60 Minutes” on CBS (#2: 4.2/ 9) by 38 percent, which certainly may not bode well for Kelly on NBC in the weekday mornings this fall. And that led into repeats of “American Ninja Warrior” (#4: 1.5/ 3 from 8-10 p.m.) and “Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge” (#3: 1.2/ 2 at 10 p.m.).

Airing out of “60 Minutes” on CBS were encore telecasts of “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#2: 3.0/ 6), “Madam Secretary” (#2: 2.7/ 5) and “Code Black” (#2: 2.3/ 5) from 8-11 p.m.

    Spin off of Big Bang. Sheldon’s childhood is one I really want to see.

    Celebrity Family Feud was so boring last night.

  • Hello Larry

    Every poll you put up involving Will & Grace that show has led each poll I believe so that looks like the most anticipated new show of the fall. I think there’s a chance Will & Grace beats Mom this season. I also voted for 9JKL, Dynasty, SWAT, and SEAL Team. I’m most looking forward to Dynasty on The CW, it looks really campy and that’s what I love about Dynasty.

    One more week until Battle of the Network Stars!
