FOX and CBS continue to see a battle in the Sunday TV ratings, with movement depending on the network hosting the football. Here are Nov. 24’s figures.
You can tell which network hosts the Sunday afternoon football. The scripted shows afterward either plummet in the TV ratings or see a huge tick up. This week was FOX’s turn to see the ticks up, as Sunday’s programming droops.
FOX and CBS were the only two networks to have new episodes of their TV shows. NFL had the Sunday Night Football, which saw the 49ers host the Packers, and pulled in 16. 98 million viewers and a 4.9 demo. ABC aired the American Music Awards all night, pulling in 6.72 million and a 1.7 demo rating. The CW opted for reruns.

So, what about the rest? Animation Domination certainly won, with The Simpsons ticking up 111% in the demo to win the night out of the scripted programming, and ticked up 161% in the total audience. The upward ticks continued throughout the night, with Bless the Harts seeing 52% and a 64% uptick in the ratings respectively.
While Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy‘s upticks weren’t as great, they were both still up in the ratings. It’s those two that we’re waiting to see if they’ll be renewed, but things are looking good right now.
Meanwhile, CBS’ 60 Minutes was down by 65% in the demo and 41% in the total audience. I doubt this is anything to worry about. The series is one of the cheaper ones to produce so will continue to hold the Sunday night slot.
God Friended Me was down by 29% and 17% respectively. This isn’t something to worry about. The series has remained relatively steady in the weeks when CBS doesn’t air the afternoon football. It’s also seen regular ticks up on the nights that the football is on.
It’s NCIS: Los Angeles that has shown disappointing views. It was down another 20% in the demo and 3% in the total audience. The one thing keeping this show safe is the fact that it’s in the middle of all CBS shows. It’s a consistent part of the Sunday night lineup, and I doubt we’ll see it leave right now.
Meanwhile, Madam Secretary ticked down by almost 10% in the demo. The total audience was up almost 5% for the final season.
