Fox on Sunday aired a full night of Miss Universe Pageant (1.1 rating in the 18-49 demo, 4.19 million viewers), which clung to last year’s demo rating but fumbled 27,000 viewers compared with last year’s November broadcast. Meanwhile, ABC’s annual The Sound of Music (0.7, 4.20M) broadcast ticked down in both metrics compared to last year’s broadcast (0.8, 4.56M).

An NFL overrun passed strong primetime stats to CBS’ 60 Minutes (2.4, 14.16M), which finished first at 7:30 PM among all non-sports shows in viewers with season-best deliveries. After the newsmag, God Friended Me (1.1, 8.42M) and NCIS: Los Angeles (0.9, 6.84M) stayed on track with performances on CBS’ most recent NFL-overrun Sunday.

An FBI repeat (0.7, 4.50M) wrapped CBS’ primetime.

Sunday Night Football-broadcasting NBC (4.1, 14.04M) ran off with the night, followed by CBS (2.0, 11.15M), Fox (1.1, 4.19M), ABC (0.7, 4.20M). They were followed by the CW (0.2, 590K), which aired iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2018 (0.2, 670K) and Discontinued (0.1, 45K).
