Preliminary Ratings: Sunday 09/25/2016

The first week of the new TV season closed out just as it had started, with a NBC sweep in the ratings. Sunday Night Football dominated the night, drawing 18.6 million viewers to the NFC match up of the Bears vs Cowboys.The game is down from last week's preliminary numbers, by two million viewers and a half a point in the A18-49 demographic.

CBS was a strong second place, with an hour of NFL overrun, plus the season premiere of 60 MINUTES and NCIS: LA. 60 MINUTES held onto 13.5 million viewers, from its NFL lead in, and a 2.3 rating in the A18-49 demo. That is down 1.5 million viewers and 0.6 points in the demo, from on year ago. NCIS: LA, now on a new night, collected 9.5 million viewers and a 1.4 rating in the demo, which is up 1.6 million viewers and 17% in the demo, from last year's Monday night premiere.

FOX tops ABC in the three demographic categories, with a mix of success from its five comedies. THE SIMPSONS is up from its 2015 premiere, while FAMILY GUY is down. SON OF ZORN, airing in between the two veteran animated comedies, dropped 23% in the A18-34 demo down 25% in the A18-49 demo, from its lead in, providing a weaker lead in for FAMILY GUY. THE LAST MAN ON EARTH was the weakest of the FOX shows, with only a 0.9 rating in the A18-49 demographic.

ABC was fourth place on the night, as ONCE UPON A TIME loses two million viewers (-34%) and 34% in the A18-49 demo, from last year's premiere. With a weaker lead in, SECRETS & LIES drew under last year's BLOOD & OIL by 2.2 million viewers, and QUANTICO drops 50% from its 2015 series premiere. Not a good night, at all, for ABC.
