Fox Sunday animation 'The Simpsons' 'Family Guy' takes third place


Last night, FOX aired encores of THE SIMPSONS (2.2/6) and THE CLEVELAND SHOW (1.9/5) as well as an hour long FAMILY GUY (2.3/6).  At 7p an NFL over-run combined with an encore of THE SIMPSONS (1.6/5) and was followed by another encore episode of THE SIMPSONS at 7:30p (1.8/5).

FOX ranked third for the night in Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.

ABC aired repeats of movies The Santa Clause # 2 (1.7/5) at 7p, followed by The Santa Clause # 3 (1.9/5) at 9p.

Due to an NFL overrun until 7:18p, Fast Nationals for CBS are approximate.  From 7-8p, NFL Overrun and 60 Minutes combined to deliver a 5.5/16.  With 60 Minutes spilling into the 8p hour, the Survivor: Nicaragua finale posted an approximate 4.1/11 from 8:30-10:30p. Note this could go up a tenth in the finals, so we project that the finale will either be the lowest ever or tied as lowest ever Survivor finale (versus last Fall’s Survivor: Samoa finale – 4.4/11 on 12/20/10). Following the finale, CBS aired the live Survivor: Nicaragua reunion, which posted a 3.5/9 in the 10:30-11pm half hour. 

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 (2.7/8), 7:30p (4.1/12) and 8p (5.6/15), NBC’s Sunday Night Football Game 15: Green Bay Packers vs. New England Patriots posted a 7.3/19 from 8:30-11p, down from last week’s matchup (PHI Eagles vs. DAL Cowboys), which delivered an 8.5/21 from 8:30-11p in the Fast Nationals before rising to a 9.5/24 from 8:31-11:33p in the Finals.
