Weekly Broadcast Finals: NFL Primetime Football Up Huge Year-to-Year (Week 9)

NBC's 'Sunday Night Football' dominated a slow Thanksgiving week in the Nielsen ratings. The game averaged a massive 6.59 A18-49 rating with 21.73 million total viewers, up 11% in the demo from last year's comparable game (5.95 rating), and up 15% among total viewers (18.95 million). FOX's coverage of Thanksgiving 'Thursday Night Football' (6.11, 20.5 million) saw even better gains, up 21% in both the demo (5.07 rating), and viewership (16.91 million) from last year.

Over on CBS, '60 Minutes' (1.96, 12.97 million) had the best week-to-week rise among non-sports programming, up 0.96 in the demo from last week. Other notable increases include 'Dancing with the Stars' (1.11, 7.88 million) and 'God Friended Me' (1.00, 8.1 million) which were up 0.21 and 0.20 respectively.

The worst decline of the week belonged to FOX's 'The Simpsons' (0.85, 2.11 million) which tumbled 0.78 from last Sunday. Lead-out 'Bob's Burgers' (0.88, 1.97 million) dropped 0.31, yet impressively beat 'Simpsons' in the demo. Both Monday's (1.39, 7.88 million) and Tuesday's (1.37, 8.23 million) episodes of 'The Voice' also had significant falls, the former down 0.28 and the latter 0.22. 'This Is Us' (1.82, 7.92 million) lost 0.16, but still easily topped the week among scripted originals.

ABC's 'Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' (1.46, 6.23 million) led the week among holiday programming, followed by NBC's 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' (0.92, 4.19 million), and CBS's 'Frosty the Snowman' (0.69, 3.51 million).
