Fox's animation Sunday 'Family Guy' 'The Simpsons' land third place


FOX aired ANIMATION DOMINATION originals last night and ranked third among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34. (Note that these declines were fully expected given the heavy competition and lack of football lead-in last night):     
THE SIMPSONS at 8p delivered a 3.1/8 among Adults 18-4, down -46% from last week.
Week two of BOB’S BURGERS posted a 2.6/6 among Adults 18-49 at 8:30p, down -42% from last week but showing stronger retention out of its SIMPSONS’ lead-in (84% vs. 79%). 

At 9p, FAMILY GUY posted a 3.7/9 among Adults 18-49, down -21%. 
THE CLEVELAND SHOW at 9:30p delivered a 2.7/7, down -25% but in line with the prior season average in the time period
An encore of THE SIMPSONS (1.2/3) and the time period premiere of AMERICAN DAD (1.7/4) aired in the 7p hour.

Airing against a NFL playoff over-run and the Golden Globe Awards, FOX ranked third for the night among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 and #2 in Teens.

Following a repeat America’s Funniest Home Videos (1.1/3), Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (2.0/5) was low, ABC’s Desperate Housewives (3.1/8) posted its lowest original ever, down -21% from last week. At 10p, Brothers & Sisters (2.1/6) matched its lowest telecast ever and fell -5% week over week.

Due to an NFL playoff over-run until 8:00p, Fast Nationals for CBS are approximate. At 8p, 60 Minutes delivered a 4.1/10. At 9p, Undercover Boss delivered a 3.3/8 and CSI: Miami at 10p posted a 2.3/6.

Due to the nature of live award shows, NBC ratings are approximate. Following the Golden Globes Red Carpet special (2.0/5), the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards posted a 4.5/11 from 8-11p, down from last year’s show which delivered a 4.7/12 from 8-11p in the Fast Nationals before rising to an 5.5/14 from 8-11:02p in the Finals.
