As expected, NBC had a huge Sunday Night Football game between the Cowboys and Giants which was up a huge 8.7 million viewers and 2.6 demo points for a season high. A good Cowboys team can always bring in huge ratings. On CBS, 60 Minutes was down eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Two colorized episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show followed and did decently in total viewers but skewed ancient. Seems like it did enough to get some more colorized episodes next Christmas. At 9pm, Madam Secretary was down 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for a series low. Guess it was being propped up by NCIS: Los Angeles more than it seemed
Elementary was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, tying a series low.

On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. ABC aired the movie Frozen after that and it didn't pretty decently for a theatrical release on TV, which is not the big draw it was back in the 1990s and before. A special about the making of Frozen that followed and didn't do as well, but was still an improvement on Quantico. It was a big improvement on ABC's usual Sunday lineup. Finally, it was FOX with the NFL overrun for a second week. The Simpsons and Son of Zorn were both down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Family Guy was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The Last Man on Earth closed things out down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Sunday Night Football (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Madam Secretary (CBS)
