BCS Selection help Fox grab No. 2 for Sunday night


With an NFL over-run, ALL-STATE BCS SELECTION special and animated comedy encores, FOX ranked No. 2 for the night among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 and No. 1 in Teens.   

At 8p the ALL-STATE BCS SELECTION special posted a 3.4/9 among Adults 18-49. An encore of THE SIMPSONS at 8:30 delivered a 2.6/6 among Adults 18-49.  A FAMILY GUY encore at 9p posted a 3.0/7, followed by an encore AMERICAN DAD that capped the night with a 2.1/5.

Following a repeat America’s Funniest Home Videos (2.0/5), ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (3.0/7) and Desperate Housewives (4.8/11) were on par.  The Brothers & Sisters Fall finale (3.7/9) at 10p gained +28% from its last telecast.

On CBS, 60 Minutes (2.1/6) was low while the last episode in this installment of Amazing Race 15 (3.7/9) was +19% above the program’s recent finales.  Cold Case (2.2/5) was on par at 9p and at 10p, a special encore NCIS: LA posted a 1.6/4.

Due to the nature of live sports, Fast Nationals for NBC are approximate. In addition, note that NBC’s 7p NFL Pre-Game will be sustained by Nielsen.  Following Football Night In America at 7p (2.3/7), 730p (3.3/9) and 8p (4.7/12), NBC’s Sunday Night Football Game 13: Vikings vs. Cardinals delivered a 6.8/16 from 830-11p, on par with last week’s Game 12 (Steelers vs. Ravens) which posted a 6.6/16 in the Fast Nationals before rising to a 7.6/19 from 8:31-11:50p in the Finals.
