Sunday TV Ratings 12/17/23: Willie Nelson 90th Birthday Special Low, The Sound of Music Down from 2022, Krapopolis Sinks (UPDATED w/Analysis)

Ratings Analysis: Willie Nelson's 90th Birthday Celebration (0.27) was quite abysmal on CBS but some of the blame could be put on its lead-in as 60 Minutes (0.40, -0.85) plummeted to a new season low in the 7 p.m. time slot. On ABC, the annual broadcast of The Sound of Music (0.32) was a touch lower than last year's (0.36) but served as an improvement over the week-ago Frozen (0.24). NBC's Ravens v. Jaguars NFL game managed a 4.25 rating but was down by almost two points from the week-ago SNF broadcast (6.13). Fox had another NFL-boosted night, so they placed Krapopolis (0.82, -0.38) in the 8 p.m. slot once more. The results were not ideal, however, as Krap could not even break a 1 this time around. The Simpsons (0.53, -0.06) had a much smaller drop in comparison, while Bob's Burgers (0.46, +0.06) and Family Guy (0.43, +0.06) were actually on the rise. The Chosen (0.03, -0.01) lost a hundredth on the CW. 

Finals Update: NFL Overrun (+3.1), The OT (+0.8), Krapopolis (+0.1), The Simpsons (+0.1), Bob's Burgers (+0.1), Willie Nelson's 90th Birthday Celebration (+0.1), and NFL: Ravens v. Jaguars (+0.8) adjusted up. Football Night in America (-0.3) adjusted down.
