Sunday TV Ratings: FAMILY GUY Steady in Big Character Death Episode; BOB’S BURGERS and AMERICAN DAD Tick Up

     November 25, 2013


Sunday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief rundown:

  • Fox’s Animation Domination kicked off with The Simpsons, earning a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demo and 6.65 million viewers for a rise of 61% from last week’s 1.8 rating.  Also up considerably was Bob’s Burgers with a 1.9 rating and 4.02 million viewers for a rise of 27% from its last new episode’s 1.5 rating.  A significant episode of Family Guy marking the departure of one of the main characters was even with last week’s 2.2 rating and scored 4.51 million viewers, while American Dad ticked up 13% to a 1.8 rating and 3.81 million viewers.
  • Over at ABC, the American Music Awards garnered a 4.5 rating and 12.90 million viewers, which is up 32% from last year’s 3.4 rating.  Granted, last year’s telecast didn’t have a giant lip syncing cat.
  • Due to football overrun that preempted programming in a number of areas, the preliminary numbers for CBS’ Sunday lineup are subject to significant change and therefore unreliable.
