Sunday ratings: NFL scores while reality shows slide

Posted on

This just in: Football is popular. (News at 11.) NBC’s NFL coverage gave the network a huge win for Sunday night, bringing in as many as 20.8 million viewers between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m. CBS’s reality shows for the night fared strangely, with Big Brother dropping over 3 million viewers in its second half and There Goes the Neighborhood‘s two-hour finale losing viewers every half-hour. King of the Hill‘s one-hour series finale pulled in a respectable 6.1 million viewers, while a new episode of Defying Gravity barely hung on for 2.5.
