SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL WASN’T NO. 1

December 27, 2012 by · 1 Comment 

With viewers making a mass exodus from their TV sets on the weekend before Christmas, NBC’s Sunday Night Football slipped to No. 2 on the Nielsen ratings chart for last week, edged out by CBS’s NCIS among total adult viewers. The show’s companion, NCIS: Los Angeles, came in at No. 3. The evening newscasts lined up in typical order: NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams again landed on top with 9.1 million viewers. ABC World News with Diane Sawyer was second with 7.9 million viewers, while the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley placed third with 7.0 million viewers. For the week overall, CBS and NBC tied for the lead with a 4.9 average household rating and an 8 share. Fox placed third with a 3.3/6, while ABC trailed with a 3.0/5.

The top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research:
1. NCIS, CBS, 12.3/19; 2. Sunday Night Football, NBC, 11.4/20; 3. NCIS: Los Angeles, CBS, 9.7/15; 4. Sunday Night NFL Pre-Kickoff, NBC, 8.3/15; 4. The Voice (Tuesday), NBC, 8.3/13; 6. The Voice, NBC, 8.0/12; 7. The Big Bang Theory, CBS, 6.7/11; 7. Hawaii Five-0, CBS, 6.7/11; 7. Mike & Molly, CBS, 6.7/10; 10. The OT, Fox, 6.6/12.

    I’m a bit shocked to find Sunday night football would be in
    the number 2 spot. I know NCIS is a great show and one of my favorites but
    football is right up there with which would be my first. It’s hard trying to
    catch all the shows on primetime when there are so many. I don’t like having to
    choose my favorites over some of the others I had interest in as well. I can’t
    be home when my show’s come on, so I rely on my PrimeTime Anytime feature which
    will record all four major networks nightly. This all takes place in my DISH
    Hopper DVR once the feature’s been enabled.
    I didn’t know about this feature until my coworker at DISH told me, and
    I can go back and play them within the next eight days. I no longer tie up all
    the DVRs in my home. Everyone’s able to benefit for this and now they can watch
    the shows they want while my shows record.
