NBC's Sunday
Night Football
grabbed the ratings win as the Philadelphia Eagles blowout of the Dallas Cowboys earned
the network an overall 6.7 rating/16 share in the 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen
overnight numbers (Due to the live nature of sports, ratings are subject to higher
than normal adjustment).

Fox premiered Jonah Hill's Allen Gregory at 8:30 p.m. in the middle of its Animation Domination
lineup, earning a 2.4, much lower than its lead-in, The Simpsons' annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween special. The Simpsons posted a 4.0, up 33% from
its last original on Oct. 2 and up 8% over last year's edition of the Halloween
episode. Family Guy fell 9% to a 3.2,
while The Cleveland Show slipped 12%
to a 2.3 over its last originals.

ABC's Once Upon a Time
held relatively steady from its premiere, dropping only a tenth to a 3.9. Pan Am  rebounded a tenth to a 1.9, while Desperate Housewives followed suit and
grew a tenth to a 3.1.The network earned an overall 2.5/6, landing in fourth
place.  

CBS earned second place with an overall 3.7/9, but approximately
30 minutes of NFL overrun inflated ratings and will likely be adjusted downwards. The Amazing Race was up to a 3.5, while The Good Wife hit a 2.3. CSI: Miami did not benefit from the
overrun, and was down a tenth to a 2.0.
