CBS and ABC show improved viewership following World Series


With the Baseball World Series out the way, CBS and ABC showed improved viewership numbers on Sunday – but NBC was the big winner again with “Sunday Night Football,” earning a 4.9 rating and a 13 share for the night overall. The game itself — Baltimore Ravens vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers — was at a 6.1/16. Below the highly rated sports programming, the best of the bunch was CBS’ “60 Minutes” at a 3.3/8 at 8 p.m., a big beneficiary of it NFL programming lead-in, up from a 2.4 rating the week before. Also in the same time slot was ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” at a 2.5/6, versus a 2.3 the previous week. Fox’s “The Simpsons” was at a 2.0/5, down from a 3.6 the week before. With the World Series over, Fox suffered, with all its regular Sunday shows taking big hits. Overall, Fox was down 47% from the week before to a 1.4/4 rating.
