Fast National ratings for Sunday, December 14, 2014.
Sunday Night Football showdown between the Cowboys and Eagles dominated primetime in all measures as NBC cruised to primetime victory.
The Dallas-Philly game delivered NBC's best Sunday Night Football overnights since the Week 1 game between the Colts and Broncos.
Over on ABC, the “Once Upon a Time” midseason finale delivered weak numbers and Barbara Walters' annual “Most Fascinating” special attracted very little interest, finishing down from last year's special, which aired on a Wednesday.
CBS got decent numbers for the return of “Undercover Boss,” but since the network had a variety of primetime delays in different football markets, it's hard to gauge the exact ratings.
On to the numbers…
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 6.2 rating for Sunday night, easily winning primetime in the key demographic. Football-boosted FOX averaged a 2.6 key demo rating for second, followed by CBS' 1.5 key demo rating. ABC averaged a 1.3 key demo rating for the night.
Overall, NBC averaged an estimated 17.9 million viewers and a 10.6 rating/17 share for Sunday night. CBS was a distant second with 9.09 million viewers and a 5.7/9. FOX's 6.815 million viewers and 4.2/7, topped ABC's 3.9/6 and 5.98 million for the night.
