Ratings Breakdown:
The 33 to 30 victory for the Los Angeles Chargers over the Pittsburgh Steelers on “Sunday Night Football” led NBC to solid overnight dominance, with an estimated 12.3 household rating and a 6.4 rating in adults 18-49 from 8:30-11:30 p.m. ET. Fox also got a boost with a primetime football overrun in the 7 p.m. half-hour (13.0/23) into a 7.5/13 (#2) for post-game “The OT” at 7:30 p.m. The rest of the evening on Fox was at typical Sunday overnight levels.

In the specials department was two-hour musical special “Garth: Live at Notre Dame!” on CBS, hosted by Garth Brooks, which was on the overnight map at a 5.7/ 9 (#2) from 8-10 p.m. Lead-in “60 Minutes” scored a comfortable 7.7/13 (#2) in the 7 p.m. hour, while a 10 p.m. edition of “NCIS: Los Angeles” averaged a 3.2/ 5 (#2).

“The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special” on ABC, meanwhile, netted a 2.2/ 4 (#3) in the 10 p.m. hour, which led out of a 2.6/ 4 (#3) for diluted “Shark Tank” at 9 p.m. As I have said numerous times, the alphabet net should move “Shark Tank” back to the Friday 8 p.m. anchor position.

Earlier in the evening on ABC was veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3: 3.2/ 5) and “Dancing With the Stars Juniors” (#4: 2.5/ 4) from 7-9 p.m.

Elsewhere, The CW limped along with its 8-10 p.m. pairing of “Supergirl” (#5: 1.0/ 2) and the reboot of “Charmed” (#5: 0.7/ 1).
