Ratings: 'The Amazing Race,' football win Sunday

Posted on

NBC’s Indianapolis-Tennessee NFL matchup led most of the night with 13.8 million viewers, and CBS scored early Sunday night thanks mostly to its Sunday afternoon football spilling over into primetime, according to early Nielsen estimates. That overrun boosted The Amazing Race to 13.1 million viewers (up 3.2 million from last week). But the net’s new medical drama Three Rivers flatlined at 9 p.m. with 9 million viewers, blowing nearly a third of that Race lead-in audience (though it was off only about 200,000 from its disappointing debut numbers); that didn’t do much to help Cold Case at 10 p.m., which dropped 25 percent from last week to 7.3 million. Fox’s animated lineup dropped a bit from last week, with the entire Simpsons/Cleveland Show/Family Guy/American Dad block down about 12 percent from last week.
