Everyone loves a Dallas Cowboys victory, aside from New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and — last night at least — Minnesota Vikings fans.

“Thursday Night Football” is currently at a season high, though those numbers may change. What won’t change is that the broadcaster absolutely crushed its competition in primetime last night.

NBC was first in ratings with a 4.4 rating/15 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 15.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. The pregame show and as much of the Cowboys game that could cram into prime netted out to those big numbers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 1.4/5 and in viewers with 7.4 million. “The Big Bang Theory” at 8 p.m. earned a 3.1/11 and 14.4 million viewers. At 8:30, “The Great Indoors” got a 1.4/5 and 7.1 million viewers. “Mom” at 9 had a 1.3/4 and 7 million viewers. At 9:30, “Life in Pieces” received a 1.2/4 and 6.3 million viewers. “Pure Genius” at 10 managed a 0.8/3 and 4.8 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.2/4 and in viewers with 5.2 million. At 8, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” put up a 1.5/5 and 6.4 million viewers. “The Great Holiday Baking Show” at 9 premiered to a 1.0/3 and 4.6 million viewers.

The CW was fourth in ratings with a 0.9/3 and fifth in viewers with 2.6 million. At 8, “DC Legends of Tomorrow’s” turn at this week’s mega-crossover posted a 1.1/4 and 3.3 million viewers. At 9, “Supernatural” received a 0.7/2 and 1.9 million viewers.

Fox and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.7/2. Fox was fourth in total viewers with 2.8 million, Telemundo was sixth with 1.711 million.

For Fox, “Rosewood” at 8 had a 0.7/3 and 3.1 million viewers. At 9, “Pitch” got a 0.7/2 and 2.4 million viewers.

Univision was seventh in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 1.689 million.
