Ratings Breakdown:
Led by the Seattle Seahawks at the New England Patriots on “Sunday Night Football,” NBC closed the week on a winning household overnight note. The match-up, Seahawks 31, Patriots 24, scored an estimated 14.3 rating/23 share in the household overnights from 8:30-11:45 p.m. ET. Comparably, this was 11 percent above the 12.9/21 for the year-so Arizona Cardinals/Seattle Seahawks game.

“60 Minutes,” featuring Lesley Stahl interviewing President-Elect Donald Trump, was above average as expected. But since an NFL football overrun ran until 7:24 p.m., all individual program results on CBS are approximate and they appear as follows:

CBS Sunday
7:00 p.m. NFL Football/”60 Minutes”: 11.8/19 (#2)
7:30 p.m. “60 Minutes”: 13.9/21 (#1)
8:00 p.m. “60 Minutes”/”NCIS: Los Angeles”: 10.3/16 (#1)
8:30 p.m. “NCIS: Los Angeles”: 7.3/11 (#2)
9:00 p.m. “NCIS: Los Angeles”/”Madam Secretary”: 6.7/10 (#2)
9:30 p.m. “Madam Secretary”: 6.1/ 9 (#2)
10:00 p.m. “Madam Secretary”/”Elementary”: 4.9/ 8 (#2)
10:30 p.m. “Elementary”: 3.8/ 7 (#2)

Fox also benefited by NFL Football, with a primetime overrun in the 7 p.m. half-hour at an 18.2/30, followed by post-game “The OT” at a 16.0/25 at 7:30 p.m. Just renewed animated mainstay “The Simpsons” was helped by the increased lead-in support, with a 4.4/ 7 at 8 p.m. But newbie “Son of Zorn” dropped the ratings’ ball with a 2.3/ 3 at 8:30 p.m. And that led into an also diluted 2.3/ 3 for “Family Guy” at 9 p.m., followed by “The Last Man on Earth” at a 1.7/ 3 (#4) at 9:30 p.m.

Diluted was also clearly the word at ABC with its combination of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3: 2.8/ 4), “Once Upon a Time” (#4: 2.2/ 3), “Secrets and Lies” (#3: 2.2/ 3) and “Quantico” (#3: 1.8/ 3), which dipped by a significant 42 percent from the 3.1/ 5 on the year-ago evening.

  1. CBS needs to find a good interviewer for 60 Minutes. Leslie Stahl is just awful: condescending and one-note. All she does is antagonize but seems to have zero understanding of any of the subjects she covers or ability to elicit elaborate, interesting responses.
