Sunday Overnights: Fox Features the Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings on the NFL Football

CBS Tops Evening on the Strength of an Encore of '60 Minutes'

Sunday, August 18, 2019

Household Ratings/Share
CBS: 3.7/ 7, Fox: 3.0/ 6, ABC: 2.9/ 6, NBC: 1.6/ 3, CW: 0.5/ 1

Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
Fox: +275, CBS: +19, ABC: + 7, NBC: -33

Ratings Breakdown:
Note: CBS’ primetime line-up began at 7:07 p.m. ET due to a sports overrun. All overnight program estimates for the network are, therefore, estimated.

Led by an encore telecast of granddaddy “60 Minutes,” CBS topped the Sunday household overnights. But an estimated 3.0/ 6 in households for Football on Fox, the Seattle Seahawks at the Minnesota Vikings, should be enough for the network to lead the evening in adults 18-49.

Elsewhere, ABC’s 8-11 p.m. game show block – “Celebrity Family Feud” (#2: 3.4/ 6), “The 100,000 Pyramid” (#3: 3.0/ 5) and “To Tell the Truth” (#3: 2.4/ 5) – was at typical Sunday overnight levels. “Big Brother” at 8 p.m. on CBS led into two episodes of canceled drama “Instinct” (see below and keep in mind that these are only approximate).
