Sunday TV Ratings 10/16/22: The Simpsons and The Great North Collapse to Season Lows, The Equalizer, East New York and The Rookie Hit Season Highs (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: It was nothing short of a disastrous evening for Fox's animation block as 'The Simpsons' (0.35, -0.72), 'The Great North' (0.26, -0.39), 'Bob's Burgers' (0.29, -0.29) and 'Family Guy' (0.32, -0.15) all crashed to new season lows. Of the four, 'Family Guy' was the only one to actually create a new series low. In the 7PM hour, reruns of 'Simpsons' (0.25) and 'Bob's' (0.27) were not too far off from the originals. On CBS, the 'NFL Overrun' (6.21) helped catapult '60 Minutes' (1.54, +0.98), 'The Equalizer' (0.79, +0.26), 'East New York' (0.56, +0.16), and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.43, +0.06) to new season highs. ABC's 'The Rookie' (0.33, +0.06) was also able to climb to its highest rating of the season and posted the largest week-to-week gain of the four shows on the alphabet network's Sunday lineup. 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.39, +0.02), 'Celebrity Jeopardy!' (0.40, +0.03), and 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.35, +0.02) all perked up a bit. NBC's 'Cowboys v. Eagles' NFL game (5.89) was easily the top broadcast of the night. After surging last week, CW dramas 'Family Law' (0.05, -0.04) and 'Coroner' (0.04, -0.02) fell back down to Earth. 

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+1.3), 'The Equalizer' (+0.1), 'East New York' (+0.1), 'NFL: Cowboys v. Eagles' (+1.5), 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1), 'The Great North' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Bob's Burgers' (+0.1) adjusted up. '60 Minutes' (-0.6), 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (-0.1), and 'Football Night in America' (-0.1) adjusted down.
