The Good Wife was also down...
The Chicago Bears/Houston Texas game on Sunday Night Football won NBC the night in the ratings. FOX was also helped by its afternoon NFL games which ran over an hour into primetime. The 200th episode of Family Guy will likely rise from last week but it is hard to say since it started much later than normal. On ABC, Once Upon A Time and Revenge were both down while The Good Wife was low for CBS.
NBC won with just under 15 million viewers and an 8.9 rating/14 share in households. It was followed by FOX (11.2 million, 6.7/10), CBS (9.85 million, 6.4/10) and ABC (6.6 million, 4.0/6). In the adults 18-49 demographic, NBC won again with a 5.5 rating, followed by FOX (4.6), ABC (2.0) and CBS (1.9).
