Ratings: ‘Will & Grace’ Hits New Low vs ‘Thursday Night Football’ Game With Brawl Conclusion

Univision finishes second in key demo with Latin Grammys

If you think Univision’s Latin Grammys were muy caliente, you should have seen the end of the Cleveland Browns-Pittsburgh Steelers game on Fox.

NBC’s “Will and Grace” hit a new low in the adults 18-49 demographic with Thursday’s episode of the revival’s final season, which was pitted against Fox’s “Thursday Night Football” game between the Browns and Steelers. Cleveland’s 21-7 victory over Pittsburgh ended with multiple NFL players ejected after Browns defensive end Myles Garrett ripped the helmet off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and hit him in the head with it, starting a big brawl that resulted in big Nielsen returns for Fox.

Fox was first in ratings with a 3.3 rating/16 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 11.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. Those numbers are the averages of Fox’s half-hour pregame show and then the Browns-Steelers “TNF” game, itself.
