On Sunday night, NFL overrun led to a good night for CBS programming. 60 Minutes was up big from last week when it didn't have an NFL lead-in but not nearly as strong as two weeks ago when it did. At 8pm, the fall season finale of The Amazing Race was up a strong 2.1 million viewers and six tenths in the demo, hitting a season high. The improved lead-in helped The Good Wife as it was up a nice 1.7 million viewers and three tenths in the demo, posting its best numbers since October 2. CSI: Miami closed out the night down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo which is good, considering it started 42 minutes later than last week.

Meanwhile on ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos started off the night up 1.2 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Once Upon a Time followed and was down eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo, hitting another series low. Is this just a problem with December originals or is it the sign of worse things coming? The luster appears to be fading a bit though. The movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory did nothing at 9pm. Over on NBC, a great Cowboys-Giants game posted the best Sunday Night Football numbers since Week 2's Philadelphia-Atlanta game.

Finally on FOX, a Christmas lineup was down across the board from last week when it had an NFL lead-in. At 8pm, The Simpsons was down a big 2.6 million viewers and a full demo point as it is always the most helped by the direct NFL lead-in. At 8:30pm, The Cleveland Show did fairly well, retaining much more of its lead-in than Allen Gregory last week. Gregory will return for what will presumably be its series finale next week. Family Guy followed and was down a million viewers and half a demo point from last week while American Dad! was basically on par with The Cleveland Show in the same slot last week.
