It was a good night for Sunday Night Football (7.0/19) and a very good night for Peyton Manning. With his 509th touchdown pass, the Denver Bronco’s quarterback broke the NFL’s record last night. That little bit of history and the Broncos’ 42-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers helped NBC get up from the tackle of last week – to the tune of 6% in preliminary ratings. That’s comparing this week’s fast nationals to the October 12 final numbers. If you compare fast nationals to fast nationals, last night’s SNF rose a strong 17%. While SNF lost among adults 18-49 to the Season 5 debut of The Walking Dead at 10 PM last Sunday, right now the bouncing back gridiron puts NBC on top the Big 4 ratings and viewership mountain with a 5.9/16 and an audience of 17.41 million. Live sports being live, expect adjustments in SNF ratings later today.

Of course, there was a lot of other football on TV last night as well with overruns from games on CBS and Fox into slipping primetime too.

As usual, those overruns left CBS’ prime a bit of a mess with everything pushed 14 minutes in East Coast and TBD - 606some Central markets due to the network’s coverage NFL coverage. As it stands right now the fast nationals are 60 Minutes (1.2/4), Madam Secretary (1.4/4), Good Wife (1.4/4) and CSI (1.4/4). The news mag show was down 8% from its October 12 show, Good Wife was up 8% and the others were even with last week.

On Fox, the schedule was a bit more stable and the ratings’ news better once you got pass the NY Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys’ match-up, which ended at 7:30 PM ET. The Simpsons (3.5/10) got a small BROOKLYN NINE NINE OCT 19NFL bounce to rise 6% among the key demo. Coming off a surge last week, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2.5/7) went up 14% from its October 12 show with last night’s Halloween themed show. The first new Family Guy in two weeks shot up 32% from that show among the 18-49s. That strong strong showing was undoubtedly a big help to newbie comedy Mulaney (1.1/3), which remained even with its October 12 broadcast.

The only network with no football last night, ABC had a pretty steady week with football and The Walking Dead considered. America’s Funniest Home Videos (1.1/3) started the night for the net dipping 8% from its Season 25 debut. Week 4 of the current season of Once Upon A Time (2.7/7) remained even with last week, which was a double-digit drop from the week before. Resurrection (1.4/3) slipped 7% for a series low in preliminary ratings. On at the same time as AMC had The Walking Dead, Revenge (1.3/4) ended the night for ABC with a small rise of 8% over last week. It should be noted that both OUAT and Resurrection saw upward adjustments last week when the final numbers came in so perhaps we could see a repeat this week.
