Sunday TV Rating 9/13/20: Masked Singer Preview Rises from 2019, Sunday Night Football Down from 2019 Start (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: As the fall season slowly starts to creep in, Fox rolled out a preview special of the upcoming season of 'The Masked Singer' (1.3). It was just a tenth below what the sneak peek managed in 2019 (1.4) but also had a slightly stronger lead-in from The OT then the year prior (4.0 vs. 3.7). The NFL lead-in juice trickled away as the night went on with a 9pm Fall preview (0.6) retaining less than half of 'Singer'. But the 9:30 'Family Guy' repeat (0.4) was a notch higher than usual. 

Fox's 'NFL Overrun' (4.9) ended up matching the 'Cowboys v. Rams' game (4.9) over on NBC for the top spot of the night. The peacock network started their night with a solid 'Football Night in America' (1.8). Likely boosted by football overrun, CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.9) went a whopping four-tenths above its last original. Lead-out 'Big Brother' (1.0) was also two-tenths above last Sunday's data point. And 'Love Island' (0.5) improved a bit from last Sunday but held steady with its Friday rating. 

The networks not boosted by the NFL stayed in fairly tepid territory. ABC had a trio of 0.4s with 'AFV' and game show repeats. 'Match Game' (0.3) once more deviated from the pack with a 10pm repeat. The CW's 'Fridge Wars' (0.1) held even and led into a 'Supernatural' repeat (0.1).

Finals Update: NFL Overrun (+3.0), Big Brother (+0.1) and The Masked Singer Sneak Peek (+0.3) adjusted up. 60 Minutes (-0.1) and The OT (-0.1) adjusted down.
