It was a busy Sunday night for the networks. ABC had the American Music Awards, but it was down 1.5 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo from last year. For whatever reason, it just didn't have as much buzz this year. Earlier in the night, America's Funniest Home Videos was even in viewers but down three tenths in the demo. CBS had a strong NFL overrun that went thirteen minutes late. It helped 60 Minutes to its second highest number of the season. Madam Secretary followed and was down four tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. The Good Wife was down three tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo while CSI closed things out down six tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The viewer total was a series low, but it wasn't all that bad considering it started at 10:43pm on the east coast.

NBC had a close Giants-Cowboys game and it posted the best SNF numbers since October 19 despite the increased ABC competition. FOX was completely left in the dust and had a pretty rough night. At 7:30pm, Mulaney was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from its last airing, which was at 9:30pm. Why is FOX even bothering to run out the string with this show? An animated repeat would do as well, if not better. At 8pm, The Simpsons was down 3.2 million viewers and 1.5 demo points from last week... ouch! The lead-in certainly didn't help but this show should be able to do better than this on non-NFL weeks. The best news for FOX came at 8:30pm with Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Though it was down a million viewers and seven tenths in the demo from last week, it fully retained Simpsons in the demo. That's a huge positive for the sophomore sitcom. After a Family Guy repeat, Bob's Burgers tumbled 1.5 million viewers and eight tenths in the demo. Why is Family Guy airing so many repeats this season?

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX)
