Sunday TV Ratings 9/17/23: Yellowstone Below Last Sunday’s Big Brother In CBS Premiere, Sunday Night Football Slips (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: A monstrous 'NFL Overrun' (7.07) on CBS was able to boost the season premiere of '60 Minutes' (1.73) to lofty heights. At 9, the network television debut of drama 'Yellowstone' (0.67) left much to be desired. Though this is a solid number at face value, 'Yellowstone' lost more than a full point from '60 Minutes' and fell short of the week-ago 'Big Brother' (0.82). 'Big Brother' itself (0.49) struggled in a later time slot. On NBC, the 'Dolphins v. Patriots' SNF game (5.63) was solid but seven-tenths below last week's 'Cowboys v. Giants' game (6.32). Fox re-ran 'The Great North' (0.19) for the first time in several months after the program was entirely absent from the summer lineup, this time placing it in the undesirable 7 p.m. time slot. It appears the network made the correct decision to omit 'North' as the encore fell behind reruns of 'Bob's Burgers' (0.25/0.20), 'The Simpsons' (0.25), 'Family Guy' (0.24/0.20). ABC had repeats of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.28/0.29/0.18/0.11). 'The Chosen' (0.03, -0.01) ticked down on the CW and was followed by another 'World's Funniest Animals' encore (0.03).

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+2.2), '60 Minutes' (+0.5), 'Yellowstone' (+0.2), and 'NFL: Dolphins v. Patriots' (+1.2) adjusted up. 'Football Night in America' (-0.8) and the repeat of 'The Great North' (-0.4) adjusted down.
