Sunday TV Ratings 11/1/20: The Simpsons Has a Big Result for Post-NFL Treehouse of Horror, Sunday Night Football Rises, Supermarket Sweep Down Again (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: After nearly a month off the air, Fox's 'Animation Domination' block was back to air their Halloween episodes the day after the end of All Hallows Eve. With the help of 'NFL Overrun' (4.5) in the 7pm hour, 'The Simpsons' (2.2) catapulted to a new season high, five-tenths above the last time it had football assistance (1.7). As usual, that momentum came to a screeching halt when the clock struck 8:30 as 'Bless the Harts' (0.9) lost just about 60% of that audience. Nonetheless, it was still a new high for the struggling sophomore. The slippage slowed down a bit in the 9pm hour as 'Bob's Burgers' (0.7) and 'Family Guy' (0.7) matched their highs but couldn't quite create new ones. 

Outside of Fox animation, NBC had the 'Cowboys v. Eagles' NFL game (3.9) and 'Football Night in America' (1.4/3.5). ABC's 'Supermarket Sweep' (0.7) took a concerning two-tenth drop in week three, now three-tenths below its stellar debut (1.0). 9pm lead-out 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' (0.5) shed a tenth in the process while 'Card Sharks' (0.3) managed to hold steady. 'AFV' (0.7) also held even in the 7pm hour. CBS went with '60 Minutes' (0.8) and the 2016 film 'Star Trek Beyond' (0.4). The CW had another disastrous showing of 'Pandora' (0.0) paired with slightly stronger 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' encores (0.1/0.1).

Finals Update: NBC's 'Cowboys v Eagles' NFL game (4.9, +1.0) adjusted up while 'Football Night in America' (0.6, -0.8; 1.9, -1.6) adjusted down. Fox's 'NFL Overrun' (6.3, +1.8) adjusted up alongside the 9pm episode of 'Bob's Burgers' (0.8, +0.1). Both 'The Simpsons' (1.7, -0.5) and 'Bless the Harts' (0.8, -0.1) adjusted down. CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.9, +0.1) and ABC's 'Supermarket Sweep' (0.8, +0.1) also adjusted up.
