NBC top broadcast network Sunday but CBS’ ‘Packers victory over Chargers’ top program.


The Peacock Network finished on top of the broadcast network standings Sunday. At 7P, ‘Football Night In America’ Part 1 finished with an average 6.93 million viewers and a 1.8/3. At 730P, ‘Football Night In America’ Part 2 finished with an average 8.54 million viewers and a 3.0/5. At 8P, ‘Football Night In America’ Part 3 finished with an average 15.91 million viewers and an 8.4/13. At 830P, ‘Sunday Night Football’ finished with an average 20.93 million viewers and a 14.6/23. The Week 6 New England Patriots/Indianapolis Colts game rating, a 14.6 overnight rating, was up 26% from Giants/Eagles last year (11.6) and up 7% from Washington/Cowboys in 2013 (13.6). Overnights also increased 7% over last year’s Patriots/Colts SNF game, which took place in Week 11 (13.6). Yet, it was not the top NFL telecast of the day, trailing the national window on CBS (15.5) — which featured the always popular Green Bay Packers victory over the San Diego Chargers. This is the fifth straight week the late doubleheader window has topped ‘Sunday Night Football’. Locally for ‘SNF’, Boston was the top market with a 44.6 rating, its highest on record for a Patriots SNF game. It had a 39.3 in Indianapolis and a 33.5 in Providence, with Denver (19.3) and West Palm Beach (19.1) rounding out the top five.


The Tiffany Network began with a bang. At 7P, the ‘NFL Overrun’ with the Green Bay Packers beating the San Diego Chargers, finished with an average 22.53 million viewers and a 16.5/28. At 730P, the ‘NFL Overrun’ finished with an average 23.36 million viewers and a 16.5/28 as the Packers broke up the game tying touchdown on the goal line. It is the power of the Packers. At 8P, an hour delayed ’60 Minutes’ finished with an average 14.67 million viewers and a 10.2/15. At 9P, an hour delayed ‘Madam Secretary’ finished with an average 9.47 million viewers and a 7.1/11. At 10P, an hour delayed ‘The Good Wife’ finished with an average 7.43 million viewers and a 6.1/10. The ‘CSI:Cyber’ telecast, regularly schedule at 10P was not counted in the prime time ratings due to the huge delay. It ran in its regularly scheduled time slots in the Mountain and Pacific time zones. Data will be supplied when available.


Ted’s Baseball Service did it again on Sunday as it used baseball to finished as the #1 cable network and the #3 network overall. At 8P, ‘Game 2 of the Cubs/Mets NLCS’ earned a 3.8 rating and 6.6 million viewers on TBS Sunday night, per Nielsen fast-nationals, up 46% in ratings and 55% in viewership from Royals/Orioles last year (2.6, 4.3M) and up 73% and 91%, respectively, from Dodgers/Cardinals in 2013 (2.2, 3.4M), both of which aired on a Saturday afternoon. Compared to Game 2 of last year’s Giants/Cardinals NLCS, which aired on Fox Sports 1 in the same Sunday night timeslot, ratings and viewership increased by 46% and 51%, respectively, from a 2.6 and 4.4 million. The Mets’ win, which peaked with 7.5 million viewers from 9-9:15 PM ET, ranks as the most-watched LCS Game 2 ever on TBS and is tied as the highest rated — matching Red Sox/Rays in 2008. Keep in mind most of the previous games aired in afternoon timeslots.


The Alphabet Network finished far behind but there is a sign of a new power program on its schedule. At 7P, ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ finished with an average 5.05 million viewers and a 3.1/5. At 8P, ‘Once Upon A Time’ finished with an average 4.81 million viewers and a 3.1/5. At 9P, the soon to be cancelled ‘Blood and Oil’ finished with an average 3.49 million viewers and a 2.4/4. After all, it is a bout ‘Dallas’ in North Dakota. At 10P, ‘Quantico’ finished with an average 5.23 million viewers and a 3.7/6 and was the network’s top program. It has been extended to a full season.


The Animal Network of Broadcast decided to lead off the evening with a rerun of one of its newest shows and it did well. At 7P, a rerun of ‘The Grinder’ finished with an average 5.22 million viewers, well above its original airing meaning that if it gets eyeballs, it has a chance to succeed. It was the top FOX show on Sunday. At 730P, a rerun of ‘The Simpsons’ drew an average 2.63 million viewers. At 8P, the regular time slot of an original ‘The Simpsons’ finished with an average 3.63 million viewers and a 2.4/4. At 830P, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ finished with an average 2.55 million viewers and a 1.8/3. At 9P, ‘Bob’s Burgers’ finished with an average 2.23 million viewers and a 1.5/2.

ESPN Gets Out Of British Open Coverage
ESPN is officially out of the British Open business. NBC Sports announced Monday that it has reached agreement with ESPN to acquire next year’s British Open and related events. Terms of the deal were not announced, but NBC will pay ESPN “an unknown fee” according to Sports Business Journal. The addition of next year’s tournament tacks an extra year onto NBC’s rights deal with British Open organizer the R&A, which was to begin in 2017. It also further shortens ESPN’s 2010 deal to air the event, which was originally supposed to run until 2018. The R&A opted out of the 2017 tournament as part of the agreement with NBC, and now ESPN has opted out of 2016.
