Primetime Ratings, Saturday, 9/14/13 & Sunday, 9/15/13

 

Big Brother

 

ABC picked up the Saturday win via college football, with NBC's 'The Million Second Quiz' coming in dead last at 8pm. On Sunday, NBC once again rode 'Sunday Night Football' to a commanding victory.

The game itself was down a bit from last week, but still easily crushed everything else on offer. '60 Minutes' rode an NFL overrun to an abnormally high 3.0 for CBS. 'Big Brother's penultimate episode of the season rose to a healthy 2.3. The second 2013 Miss America pageant (yes, they scheduled two this year for some strange reason) jumped up four tenths to a 2.0. The Miss America themed 20/20 special that preceded the pageant also climbed up a good amount from last year's equivalent broadcast.

Sunday the 29th will be very interesting to watch, as football was so overwhelmingly dominant last year that every single other show in primetime suffered gigantic losses. 'Once Upon A Time' and 'Revenge' were probably the biggest sufferers of this phenomenon. CBS' line-up of 'The Good Wife', and 'The Mentalist' also took huge dives. If the NFL so thoroughly destroys all of its scripted competition again this year, it may be time to ask why the other networks even bother trying to compete. They might just be better suited to move their Sunday programming to different nights and call it a wash.
