Primetime Ratings, Saturday, 9/21/13 & Sunday, 9/22/13

 

Neil Patrick Harris hosting the Emmys

 

ABC picked up the Saturday win via college football, while NBC and CBS split the Sunday victory.

'Sunday Night Football's Bears-Steelers match-up was down by about half a ratings point from last week's game, but still easily won the 18-49 demo for the night as a whole. 'The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards' rose up a full point from the 2012 ceremony, and pulled down the highest ratings for the event since the Ryan Seacrest hosted 2007 broadcast. Our own Robert Steele covered this news item in more depth here. Never underestimate America's love for Neil Patrick Harris.

As I mentioned last week, next Sunday will prove very interesting for ratings watchers, as most of the big four's scripted line-up makes its return. Football dominance led shows like 'Once Upon A Time' and 'Revenge' to dive bomb in the 18-49 demo during their respective sophomore seasons, and even established series like 'The Mentalist' suffered. While sports have always drawn higher numbers than scripted programming (for obvious reasons), last fall really took things to a new level. Tune in next week to see if your favorite Sunday show manages to withstand the NFL's onslaught.
