TV Ratings: 'Once Upon a Time' continues to grow on ABC
NBC's Sunday Night Football game -- Cowboys vs. Falcons -- dominated the lineup last night, easily giving the network the lead in the adults 18-49 demo. Meanwhile, ABC's "Once Upon a Time" was the night's only gainer in the scripted department, getting its best ratings since the season premiere with "Lost" star Jorge Garcia featured. On-the-bubble series "666 Park Avenue" dropped significantly this week.
Early estimates put NBC at an average 15.8 million viewers and a 9.7 rating/15 share in primetime -- though these numbers will change some when adjustments are made for the live broadcasts. CBS came in second with 13.6 million viewers (8.6/13). ABC averaged 7.2 million and a 4.4/7 share, with FOX trailing with 4.4 million viewers (2.5/4).
The adults 18-49 crown easily went to NBC. They scored a 6.1, miles ahead of CBS at 3.3, ABC at 2.3, and FOX at 2.0.
