Sunday night had an NFL overrun on FOX, but it ended pretty early and most of the country was watching the Seahawks blowout the Giants, so it wasn't the biggest boost to the entertainment lineup. At 8pm, The Simpsons was still up 2.5 million viewers and a full demo point, but it wasn't as big as it has been on other NFL days. At 8:30pm, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo as its retention of The Simpsons was significantly weaker this week. Family Guy followed down 1.1 million viewers and a rough seven tenths in the demo from its last airing three weeks ago. It hit another series low, it has not been very strong this season. Dud Mulaney was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week, when it followed a Family Guy repeat. FOX made the necessary move today of swapping Mulaney with Bob's Burgers. Mulaney will now air at 7:30pm on non-doubleheader days for FOX (and those ratings will probably be scary low). Bob's Burgers gets a timeslot upgrade and will now air at 9:30pm. While not official, Mulaney's episode trimming and this change is a de facto cancellation.

CBS did not have the NFL overrun but still had solid total viewer counts. 60 Minutes had its best showing without an NFL overrun this season at 7pm. At 8pm, Madam Secretary was down seven tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo, but the lead-in was nearly two full demo points lower, so that's understandable. The total viewer count was still strong. It will be interesting to see if it can keep this up when football is completely out of the picture in the spring. At 9pm, The Good Wife was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo from last week, when it aired at 10pm. CSI finally aired after two weeks of preemptions, and it was down two tenths in viewers and the demo from its last airing for a series low. I have a feeling we'll get an announcement before Christmas that this will be the final season for CSI. 

On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos had a good night as it was up six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. With a shorter (and less interesting) NFL overrun, it appears that some football fans may switch over to Videos. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Resurrection was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low. Revenge finally beat Resurrection for the first time as it was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This says more about Resurrection's weakness than Revenge's strength. NBC had a complete blowout on Sunday Night Football courtesy of the Packers, and that resulted in a season low.
