Ratings: ‘Dancing With the Stars Juniors’ Settles for Soft Finale Against ‘Sunday Night Football’

NBC trucks broadcast competition as Bears beat L.A. Rams

The Chicago Bears shocked the Los Angeles Rams last night on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” and ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors” just kind of ended without a bang.

The latest Mirrorball Trophy presentation attracted just about 4.1 million viewers, and received a soft 0.6 rating among adults 18-49, with just a 2 share. While the overall audience-tally for the ABC spinoff competition was up from last week, the key demo number didn’t budge.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for NBC and Fox should be considered subject to significant adjustment.

NBC was first in ratings with a 4.3 rating/16 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 14.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. Those numbers are the average of a 90-minute pregame show and the actual game itself.

Fox was second in ratings with a 3.4/13 and in viewers with 10.7 million. After a huge NFC East-overrun, a heavily boosted “Simpsons” at 8 p.m. earned a 2.8/10 and 7.5 million viewers. “Bob’s Burgers” at 8:30 landed a 1.8/7 and 4.4 million viewers. “Family Guy” at 9 got a 1.5/6 and 3.5 million viewers. At 9:30, “Rel” received a 0.8/3 and 2.1 million viewers. Those are all likely coming down — and quite a bit.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.8/3 and in viewers with 7.3 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” had a 0.9/4 and 8.8 million viewers. “God Friended Me” at 8 got a 0.8/3 and 7.5 million viewers. At 9, “NCIS: Los Angeles” received a 0.9/3 and 7.5 million viewers. “Madam Secretary” at 10 closed primetime with a 0.6/2 and 5.3 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 3.5 million. Following a rerun and the “DWTS: Juniors” finale, “Shark Tank” at 9 had a 0.7/3 and 3.4 million viewers. A repeat followed.

The CW and Univision tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.4/1. CW was fifth in total viewers with 1.2 million, Univision was sixth with 996,000.

For The CW, “The Flash” at 8 had a 0.6/2 and 1.8 million viewers. At 9, “Charmed” got a 0.3/1 and 963,000 viewers.

Telemundo was seventh in ratings with a 0.3/1 and in viewers with 930,000.
