Sunday TV Ratings 11/12/23: Lawmen: Bass Reeves Preview Weak, Krapopolis Struggles in Post-NFL Slot, Sunday Night Football Drops (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The broadcast debut of Lawmen: Bass Reeves (0.22/0.18) did not impress on CBS and fell short of the episode of Yellowstone (0.32) that led into it. In the 7 p.m. time slot, 60 Minutes (0.60, +0.11) picked up a full tenth and some change. That was enough to put Minutes several notches above ABC's America's Funniest Home Videos (0.36, -0.05). The latter was down by half a tenth and led into the movie of the week, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (0.20). Star Wars was weaker than the week-ago Coco (0.27) and was followed by a rerun of AFV (0.11). Over on Fox, NFL Overrun (5.29) and The OT (2.45) were noticeably lower than last week but still helped Krapopolis (0.90, +0.27) soar for its second appearance in the 8 p.m. time slot. The Simpsons (0.55, -0.93) was demoted to the 8:30 p.m. slot for one night and found itself at a much lower level than it usually is on a football-boosted evening. This is definitely a bit higher than what Simpsons manages on a non-NFL night, but it clearly needs the direct OT boost to break the 1.0 barrier. In the 9 p.m. hour, Bob's Burgers (0.47, -0.06) and Family Guy (0.40, -0.08) came down a bit after posting season highs last week. The "Jets v. Raiders" NFL game posted a 4.20 rating on NBC, placing it seven tenths below the "Bills v. Bengals" game (4.89) from last week. The Chosen (0.04, -0.01) lost a hundredth on the CW. 

Finals Update: America's Funniest Home Videos (+0.1), "NFL: Jets v. Raiders" (+1.1), NFL Overrun (+2.4), The OT (+0.2), and Krapopolis (+0.2) adjusted up. Football Night in America (-0.5) and 60 Minutes (-0.1) adjusted down.
