A tight “Sunday Night Football” game handed its host network a pretty comfortable Nielsen ratings victory last night. Behind NBC’s and Fox’s football, ABC edged CBS in primetime among the key 18-49 demographic — though their order flip-flops in terms of total viewers.

ABC rebroadcast “Frozen” on Sunday, which beat two CBS procedurals in that fairly young demo.

NBC was first in ratings with a 3.9 rating/13 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 12.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. The network’s pregame show and its New Orleans Saints-Atlanta Falcons game combined for those numbers.

Fox was second in ratings with a 2.9/10 and in viewers with 8.8 million. After the end of its own afternoon NFC matchup and postgame show “The OT,” “The Simpsons” at 8 p.m. posted a 2.7/9 and 7.5 million viewers. At 8:30, “Bob’s Burgers” had a 1.6/5 and 3.8 million viewers. Another “Bob’s Burgers” at 9 got a 1.3/4 and 2.9 million viewers. At 9:30, “Family Guy” finished Fox’s prime with a 1.2/4 and 2.8 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 0.9/3 and fourth in viewers with 4.3 million. “America’s Funniest Home Videos” at 7 received a 0.9/3 and 5.3 million viewers. Following the “Frozen” re-air, “Encore!” at 10 had a 0.5/2 and 1.9 million viewers.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.8/3 and third in viewers with 7.5 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” got a 1.1/4 and 9.9 million viewers. “Wisdom of the Crowd” at 8 had a 0.7/2 and 6.2 million viewers. At 9, “NCIS: Los Angeles” got a 0.8/3 and 7.3 million viewers. “Madam Secretary” at 10 managed a 0.7/2 and 6.4 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.3 million.

Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.3/1 and in viewers with 828,000.

The CW does not nationally program Sunday nights.
