-Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
Fox: +12, NBC: + 5, ABC: no change, CBS: – 2

Ratings Breakdown:
Football ruled last night, of course, with the Los Angeles Rams/Chicago Bears match-up on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” netting an estimated 13.1 overnight household rating and a 6.8 rating among adults 18-49 from 8:30-11:30 p.m. ET. A primetime football overrun on Fox, meanwhile, scored an approximate 17.0 household rating in the 7 p.m. half-hour, which lifted the network for the entire evening.

Elsewhere, The CW aired a Sunday 8 p.m. edition of its most-watched series, “The Flash,” which was an improvement over regularly scheduled “Supergirl” with a 1.4 rating/2 share in the household overnights. But that did not help lead-out “Charmed,” which slipped to a 0.8/ 1 at 9 p.m.

In season-finale news, ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars Junior” concluded with a modest 2.7/ 5 in the 8 p.m. hour (#4), which led into a similarly lackluster 2.5/ 4 for “Shark Tank” at 9 p.m. On CBS, there was nothing unusual to report with its combination of granddaddy “60 Minutes” (#2: 6.8/11 at 7 p.m.), freshman “God Friended Me” (#2: 5.3/ 8 at 8 p.m.), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#2: 5.2/ 8 at 9 p.m.) and “Madam Secretary” (#2: 4.0/ 7 at 10 p.m.).
