Sunday TV Ratings 11/21/21: American Music Awards Steady with 2020, Fox Comedies Stable with Last Post-NFL Night (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The '2021 American Music Awards' (1.03) was steady with what it posted in 2020 (1.0) and gave ABC some relief from its usual, underperforming lineup. Likely due to the stronger lead-out, 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.53, +0.06) rose by six-hundredths in the 7pm slot. 'NFL Overrun' (7.00) and 'The OT' (3.17) were back on Fox, meaning that 'The Simpsons' (1.19, +0.70), 'The Great North' (0.67, +0.35), 'Bob's Burgers' (0.63, +0.22), and 'Family Guy' (0.59, +0.23) all received a healthy boost. Every show but 'Family Guy' improved from the last time they had the direct NFL lead-in (1.15/0.64/0.56/0.59). Without any meaningful football help, CBS's '60 Minutes' (0.58, -1.18) crash-landed back down to middling territory. At 8, 'The Equalizer' (0.60, +0.03) grew a bit from the last time it aired while 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.50) held flat and led into a repeat of 'FBI: International' (0.30). NBC's 'Steelers v. Chargers' NFL game (3.83, -0.74) was a whopping seven-tenths behind last week's 'Chiefs v. Raiders' match (4.57). 'Football Night in America' (1.40/2.90) held down the ninety-minute stretch before the game. The CW's 'Legends of the Hidden Temple' (0.04, -0.02) lost some ground and was followed by anemic reruns of 'Masters of Illusion' (0.02/0.01).

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+2.4), 'The OT' (+0.6), 'The Simpsons' (+0.1), 'The Great North' (+0.1), 'NFL: Steelers v. Chargers' (+0.8), and '60 Minutes' (+0.1) adjusted up.
