Sunday TV Ratings 10/22/23: The Great Halloween Fright Fight Weak for ABC, Krapopolis and Family Guy Hit New Lows, Big Brother Jumps from Last Sunday (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: ABC foolishly placed 'The Great Halloween Fright Fight' (0.14) in the 10 p.m. time slot and got the type of performance that is to be expected when family programming airs at such a late hour. The alphabet network kept up with the Halloween theme by also airing 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' (0.29) and 'Toy Story of Terror!' (0.17). However, all three lost to the 7 p.m. rerun of 'AFV' (0.33). Fox had a rough night as well as 'The Simpsons' (0.30, -0.09), 'Bob's Burgers' (0.23, -0.07), and 'Family Guy' (0.24, -0.02) all slipped to new season lows. In the case of 'Family Guy', this rating also doubles as a new series low. 'Krapopolis' (0.18, -0.09) also crashed to a series low and stuck out like a sore thumb in the 8:30 p.m. time slot. In the 7 p.m. hour, a repeat of 'LEGO Masters' (0.33) clearly had some NFL help baked into it. On CBS, the 'NFL Overrun' (5.93) boosted '60 Minutes' (1.03, +0.51), 'Yellowstone' (0.37), and 'Big Brother' (0.44, +0.08). The 'Dolphins v. Eagles' game on NBC (5.86) was over a full point higher than the week-ago 'Giants v. Bills' (4.57). 'The Chosen' (0.03, -0.01) ticked down on the CW and was followed by encores of 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.03/0.03).

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+1.9), '60 Minutes' (+0.1), 'Yellowstone' (+0.1), and 'NFL: Dolphins v. Eagles' (+1.3) adjusted up. The repeat of 'LEGO Masters' (-0.1) and 'Football Night in America' (-0.6) adjusted down.
