Sunday TV Ratings 12/12/21: A Christmas Proposal and Miss Universe Draw Decent Interest, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune Slips, NFL Sunday Night Football Rises (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: ABC's 'Supermarket Sweep' (0.34, +0.05) was able to rise by five-hundredths after setting a new low the week prior. The rest of the alphabet network's lineup was not so lucky, with 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.36, -0.02) and 'The Rookie' (0.28, -0.02) both sinking to series lows. At 7, 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.39, -0.14) took an even bigger hit than 'Wheel' and 'Rookie'. Though it had a slightly higher 'NFL Overrun' (5.03) than it did on December 5th, CBS's '60 Minutes' (1.38, -0.02) was two-hundredths shy of its week-ago installment. In the 9pm hour, TV movie 'A Christmas Proposal' (0.48) retained less than 35% of the '60 Minutes' audience. On NBC, the 'Bears v. Packers' NFL game (5.00) was markedly stronger than the week-ago 'Broncos v. Chiefs' outing (4.65). 'Football Night in America' (1.91) was the second-highest in the 7pm timeslot. Over on Fox, the '70th Miss Universe' pageant (0.57) was over three-tenths below the 69th one from all the way back in 2019 (0.9). The CW's 'Legends of the Hidden Temple' (0.06) was stable, but 'Greatest Holiday Commercials Countdown' (0.03) shed half of the 'Temple' rating at 9. 

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+0.9), '60 Minutes' (+0.2), 'A Christmas Proposal' (+0.1), 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (+0.1), 'NFL: Bears v. Packers' (+1.0), '70th Miss Universe' (+0.1), and 'Football Night in America' (+0.8) adjusted up.
