The "Sunday Night Football" has been ruling the American TVs for the past few weeks and its succesful run on TV continued last weekend too as it has registered the highest ratings again.
The football match was not a big hit on TV due to the bad performance of the New York Giants, who lost the game to the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 27-0. The "Sunday Night Football" earned a 6.0 rating among the age group of adults between 18-49 for NBC.
"The game was off just 13 percent to a 6.0 rating among adults 18-49. That stat is certain to rise in the finals," the Hollywood Reporter website claims. The post-game show registered 5.8 rating.
The airing of National Football League benefited "The Simpsons", which is not run at prime time. The cartoon show was close to reach its season high rating as it got a 3.3 rating in the key demographic. This TV show is followed by "Once Upon A Time", which got a 2.6 rating.
The rating for "Once Upon A Time" has dropped by 21%. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is in the next position and its viewership has grown by 31% compared to previous weeks.
"Family Guy" and "Madam Secretary" are in the seventh and eighth positions respectively. While the former got a 1.7, the latter got a 1.5 rating. The "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "Resurrection" both received 1.4 ratings. The latter seems to have lost about 30% viewership, which is the lowest this season for the show.
"Mulaney" and "America's Funniest Home Videos" shows have crossed one rating each.
