Sunday TV Ratings: ‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘Last Man on Earth’ Make Gains

     November 16, 2015


The Sunday TV ratings for November 15th are in; here are some of the highlights:

  • A two-hour Once Upon a Time on ABC starting at 8 p.m. bolstered ABC’s Sunday numbers, as its second hour was a vast improvement over Blood & Oil’s numbers in that slot. OUAT notched a 1.6 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and 4.81 million viewers.
  • NBC of course won the night in the key demo and with viewers overall thanks to Sunday Night Football, which brought in a 6.5 rating and 17.66 million viewers (smaller than last week, but still the biggest programming of the night).

    Meanwhile, football overages on CBS means their regular programming was bumped nearly an hour, which could skew the numbers mightily. But more or less, Madam Secretary (kicking off at 8:57 p.m.) garnered a 1.3 rating and 10.1 million viewers, while The Good Wife (9:57 p.m.) pulled a 1.1 and 8.03 million viewers (both consistent with recent weeks). Football bumped CSI: Cyber out of the primetime ratings completely, but it can be assumed it was probably slow and steady per usual.

  • At 8:30 p.m. on Fox, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was up a tenth to a 1.3 rating and 2.69 million viewers, while Family Guy at 9 p.m. was back in action after last week, rising two tenths to a 1.4 rating and 2.87 million viewers. That trend continued for The Last Man on Earth at 9:30 p.m., which notched a 1.2 rating and 2.83 million viewers, up two tenths from last week.
  • At 10 p.m., ABC’s Quantico was steady with a 1.3 rating and 4.22 million viewers, which is pretty much the new normal for “doing just fine.”
