Sunday TV Ratings 10/17/21: The Equalizer and NCIS: LA Slip with Larger NFL Lead-In, Sunday Night Football and Celebrity Wheel of Fortune Dip, The Great North Rises from Last Fox Non-NFL Night (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Even with the 'NFL Overrun' (6.02) boosting '60 Minutes' (1.63) to a mammoth rating, 'The Equalizer' (0.74, -0.03), 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.57, -0.08), and 'SEAL Team' (0.39, -0.05) all lost a couple hundredths from their week-ago premieres on CBS. Over on NBC, the 'Seahawks v. Steelers' NFL game (4.59) dropped by six-tenths from last week's football broadcast. 'Football Night in America' (1.2) was also on the lower-end of its usual delivery in the 7pm slot. ABC was mostly on the rise as 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.47, +0.04), 'Supermarket Sweep' (0.43, +0.06), and 'The Rookie' (0.36, +0.05) gained a few ticks apiece. 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.50) was the lone show not to rise, instead holding steady in the 8pm slot. On Fox, 'The Simpsons' (0.53) rose by a hundredth from the last time it didn't have an NFL lead-in while 'The Great North' (0.40) was up by five-hundredths. 'Bob's Burgers' (0.46) and 'Family Guy' (0.47) held even with their previous, non-NFL episodes in the 9pm hour. Reruns of 'Simpsons' (0.39) and 'Bob's' (0.30) occupied the 7pm and 7:30pm slots respectively. 'Legends of the Hidden Temple' (0.05) and 'Killer Camp' (0.03) each forfeited two hundredths on the CW. 

Finals Update: America's Funniest Home Videos (+0.1), NFL Overrun (+0.8), 60 Minutes (+0.3), NFL: Seahawks v. Steelers (+1.0), Celebrity Wheel Of Fortune (+0.1), Bob's Burgers (+0.1), NCIS: Los Angeles (+0.1), The Rookie (+0.1) and Family Guy (+0.1) adjusted up.
