Ratings: ‘Sunday Night Football’ Scores for NBC; ‘666 Park Ave.’ and ‘Revenge’ Rise

While down from last week's game, Dallas-Philly matchup gives NBC an overall win

"Sunday Night Football" gave NBC a decisive if expected win, while ABC's  "Revenge" and the recently canceled "666 Park Avenue" grew, according to preliminary numbers.

While the nature of live sports makes NBC's numbers more approximate than usual, the network currently holds a commanding first place in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic with a 5.3 rating/13 share and in total viewers with 15 million total viewers.

Following three episodes of "Football Night in America" from 7 to 8:30 p.m., which drew a 1.8/5, 3.2/8 and 4.9/12, respectively, the Eagles vs. Cowboys game at 8:30 posted a 6.7/16 — down from last week's game between the Packers and the Giants — and drew 18.1 million total viewers. 

CBS drew second place in ratings and total viewers with a 3.2/8 and 13.3 million, though the network's numbers are also subject to revision due to NFL overrun that aired until 7:41 p.m. NFL overrun combined with "60 Minutes" from 7 to 8 drew a 5.9/16 and 16.6 million total viewers, while the continuation of "60 Minutes" combined with the beginning of "The Amazing Race" the following hour posted a 3.1/7 with 13.6 million total viewers.

From 9 to 10, the conclusion of "Amazing Race" paired with "The Good Wife" took a 2.2/5 and 9.7 million total viewers, while the end of "The Good Wife" coupled with a repeat of "The Mentalist" at 10 had a 1.5/4 with 8.8 million total viewers.

ABC took third place in ratings and total viewers with a 2.1/5 and 7 million. "America's Funniest Home Videos" at 7 was even with last week with a 1.6/4 and 7.4 million total viewers, while "Once Upon a Time" the following hour was also flat versus last week for a 3.1/7 and 9 million total viewers.

"Revenge" at 9 was up 9 percent for a 2.4/5 and had 7.6 million total viewers, while "666 Park Avenue" was up 17 percent, drawing a 1.4/3, and had 4 million total viewers.

Fox took fourth place in ratings and total viewers with a 1.7/4 and 3.9 million. Its numbers are also skewed due to NFL preemption during the 7 p.m. hour. NFL overrun combined with a "Bob's Burgers" repeat at 7 posted a 1.3/3 with 3.5 million total viewers. while "The Cleveland Show" at 7:30 had a 1.6/4 with 3.4 million total viewers.

Following a "Simpsons" repeat at 8, "Bob's Burgers" at 8:30 slipped 10 percent to a 1.8/4 and drew 3.9 million total viewers. A "Family Guy" repeat aired at 9, followed by "American Dad" at 9:30, which inched up to a 2.0/4 with 4.2 million total viewers.
