Sunday TV Ratings: Football Reigns Supreme, ‘Quantico’ Hits Season Low

     November 2, 2015


The Sunday TV ratings for November 1st are in; here are some of the highlights:

  • The NFL matchup between the undefeated Denver Broncos and the (formerly) undefeated Green Bay Packers was the chosen viewing of most TV-watching Americans Sunday night, with NBC pulling a 7.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, and 20 million viewers for the game. (Remember though that live sports numbers are never final, so there will likely be some adjustments across the board for these ratings).
  • The final game of the World Series garnered Fox a 4.8 rating and 16.28 million viewers. Despite the MLB losing out to football, the even also happens to be the highest-rated World Series in a few years (it probably helps that one of the teams is located in a major TV market).

  • As for scripted series, ABC’s Once Upon a Time at 8 p.m. dropped a mere tenth of a point to a 1.5 rating and 4.82 million viewers, while CBS’s Madam Secretary dipped two tenths from last week, to a 1.1 rating and 9.67 million viewers.
  • At 9 p.m., The Good Wife was down a tenth to a 0.9 rating and 7.55 million viewers, while the struggling new series Blood & Oil on ABC was also down a tenth to a 0.8 rating and 3.25 million viewers.
  • Quantico on ABC hit its season low 1.2 rating and 4.03 million viewers at 10 p.m., while CSI: Cyber on CBS stayed steady with a 0.8 rating and 5.58 million viewers.
