steelers chiefs ratings 112 TV ratings: 'Once Upon a Time' down some as NFL dominates SundayFast national ratings for Sunday, Nov. 27, 2011

NFL games — both the scheduled contest on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” and an afternoon game that bled nearly an hour into primetime on CBS — ruled Sunday night’s ratings. “Once Upon a Time,” meanwhile, declined some from previous episodes (though it still performed pretty well), and ABC’s first Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, “Mitch Albom’s Have a Little Faith,” drew pretty meager ratings.

NBC led the night with 14.2 million viewers and an 8.7 rating/13 share in households, beating out the 13.5 million viewers and 8.2/12 for CBS (numbers for both nets will change in the final nationals when the live NFL telecasts are accounted for). ABC (7.8 million, 4.6/7) finished third overall, while FOX — which also had an NFL overrun in some markets — delivered 5.3 million viewers and a 3.0/4.

Thanks to “Sunday Night Football,” NBC also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 5.4 rating. CBS took second with a 3.6. FOX’s 2.4 beat out ABC’s 1.8 for third.
