Fox Sunday animation fourth-place


Airing against significant competition from the NFL game on NBC (NY Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys), FOX’s FAMILY GUY and THE SIMPSONS were the top 2 entertainment programs of the night among Adults 18-34, Men 18-34 and Teens last night.

THE SIMPSONS: 3.0/7, down from last week’s NFL-boosted rating but up +15% from its episode without an NFL lead-in two weeks ago (vs. 2.6 11/27/11)                                                       
THE CLEVELAND SHOW (tpp): 2.3/5, down -8% from last week’s airing

FAMILY GUY: 3.1/7, down -14% from last week’s NFL-boosted rating, but up +11% from its episode without an NFL lead-in two weeks ago (vs. 2.8 on 11/27/11)  

AMERICAN DAD: 2.5/6, up +14% from its last airing two weeks ago

Encores of BOB’S BURGERS (3.5/10) and THE CLEVELAND SHOW (1.8/5) aired from 7-8pm.


Following a repeat America’s Funniest Home Videos (1.6/4), ABC’s Once Upon a Time fell to a season low with a 2.9/7, down -9% from last week. Once Upon a Time has yet to post a week-to-week gain since its debut in late October. An encore presentation of the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory posted a 1.3/3 from 9-11p.
Due to an NFL overrun until 7:41p, Fast Nationals for CBS are approximate. The conclusion of CBS’ NFL Overrun combined with 60 Minutes to deliver a 3.7/9 from 7:30-8:30p. From 8:30-9:30p, 60 Minutes and The Amazing Race finale posted a 3.2/8. From 9:30-10:30p, The Amazing Race finale and The Good Wife combined for a 2.4/5, and from 10:30-11p, The Good Wife and CSI: Miami combined for a 2.0/5.

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 (2.5/7), 730p (4.3/11) and 8p (6.2/15), NBC’s Sunday Night Football Game 14: New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys posted an 8.5/20 from 8:30-11p, up from last week’s Sunday night matchup (Detroit Lions vs. New Orleans Saints), which delivered a 6.5/15 from 8:30-11p in the Fast Nationals before rising to a 7.4/18 from 8:31-11:17p in the Finals.
