Sunday TV Ratings 11/5/23: The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy Easily Hit Season Highs, Big Brother Drops, The Chosen Rises (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: For just the second time this season, the entire Fox cartoon lineup received direct assistance from NFL Overrun (6.72) and The OT (3.87). This helped The Simpsons (1.48, +1.17) explode to its highest rating of the season for the latest installment of its "Treehouse of Horror" anthology series. Unfortunately, the boost faded away at 8:30 as Krapopolis (0.63, +0.39) lost almost 60% of its Simpsons lead-in. Bob's Burgers (0.53, +0.28) and Family Guy (0.48, +0.24) still set new season highs in the 9 p.m. hour, but the gains were evidently much smaller due to the sharp decline that took place when Krap came on. On CBS, 60 Minutes (0.49, -0.73) and Big Brother (0.37, -0.13) struggled without NFL help. Yellowstone (0.29/0.26) was also down significantly from the 0.53 rating it posted last week. America's Funniest Home Videos (0.41, +0.03) grew a bit on ABC, but a showing of Pixar film Coco (0.27) still fell short of last week's Hocus Pocus (0.35). A rerun of Generation Gap (0.14) retained just half of its lead-in in the 10 p.m. time slot. The "Bills v. Bengals" NFL game (4.89) outpaced the week-ago "Bears v. Chargers" (4.43) on NBC. Despite being surrounded by reruns of Sullivan's Crossing (0.03) and Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.02), The Chosen (0.05, +0.01) picked up a hundredth on the CW.

Finals Update: "NFL Overrun" (+1.6), "The Simpsons" (+0.1), "NFL: Bills v. Bengals" (+1.1), "Coco" (+0.1), and "Big Brother" (+0.1) adjusted up. "The OT" (-0.3) and "Football Night in America" (-0.7) adjusted down.
