Nielsen Overnights (18-49)
‘Sunday Night Football’ scores for NBC
49ers-Broncos average a 14.8 metered-market household rating
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Oct. 20, 2014

It was a big night for Peyton Manning, who broke the NFL career touchdown pass record Sunday night, leading the Denver Broncos to a 42-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

It was also a big night for NBC, which aired the game on “Sunday Night Football” and drew the show’s best rating since its season premiere.

“SNF” averaged a 14.8 household rating from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m., according to Nielsen metered markets, peaking with a 17.0 from 9:30 to 10 p.m., when Manning threw his record-breaking pass.

Elsewhere Sunday night, Fox’s “The Simpsons” was the night’s No. 1 scripted series with a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating, according to overnights.

The network saw big gains over last week while airing the late NFL game, which averaged a 5.9 at 7 p.m.

“Simpsons” was up 6 percent from last week, and lead-out “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” grew 14 percent, to a 2.5. At 9 p.m., “Family Guy” surged 32 percent from its most recent original two weeks ago, to a 2.5, while lead-out “Mulaney” held steady with a 1.1, losing more than half of “Guy’s” lead-in.

ABC’s top show, “Once Upon a Time,” posted a 2.7 at 8 p.m., finishing as the No. 2 scripted show of the night. At 10 p.m., “Revenge” grew a tenth over last week to a 1.3.

CBS’s “The Good Wife” was also up a tenth to a 1.4.

NBC led the night among 18-49s with a 5.9 average overnight rating and a 16 share. Fox was second at 3.6/10, ABC third at 1.6/4, CBS fourth at 1.4/4, Univision fifth at 0.8/2 and Telemundo sixth at 0.2/1.

As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won’t be available for several weeks. Forty-nine percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.

Also, ratings for NBC’s NFL coverage are approximate as fast nationals measure timeslot and not actual program data. And CBS’s primetime was delayed by 14 minutes in some Eastern and Central time zone markets due to NFL overrun.

Fox started the night in the lead with a 5.9 at 7 p.m. for NFL overrun and “The OT,” followed by NBC with a 3.2 for “Football Night in America.” CBS was third with a 1.2 for “60 Minutes,” ABC fourth with a 1.1 for “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” Univision fifth with a 0.6 for “Aqui y Ahora” and Telemundo sixth with a 0.3 for the end of the movie “Push.”

NBC took the lead at 8 p.m. with a 6.5 for NFL pregame and the start of “SNF,” while Fox slid to second with a 3.0 for “Simpsons” (3.5) and “Brooklyn” (2.5). ABC was third with a 2.7 for “Time,” CBS fourth with a 1.4 for “Madam Secretary,” Univision fifth with a 0.9 for “Va Por Ti” and Telemundo sixth with a 0.2 for “Yo Soy el Artista.”

At 9 p.m. NBC was first with a 7.4 for “SNF,” with Fox second with a 1.8 for “Guy” (2.5) and “Mulaney” (1.1). ABC and CBS tied for third at 1.4, ABC for “Resurrection” and CBS for “Wife,” with Univision fifth with a 1.0 for more “Va” and Telemundo sixth with a 0.3 for more “Artista.”

NBC was first again at 10 p.m. with a 6.5 for more football, followed by CBS with a 1.4 for “CSI.” ABC was third with a 1.3 for “Revenge,” Univision fourth with a 0.9 for “Sal y Pimienta,” and Telemundo fifth with a 0.2 for the end of “Artista” and start of “Suelta la Sopa Extra.”

Among households, NBC was first for the night with a 10.2 average overnight rating and a 16 share. CBS was second at 6.8/11, Fox third at 5.1/8, ABC fourth at 3.5/5, Univision fifth at 1.2/2, and Telemundo sixth at 0.3/1.

TV Notes
Ryan Murphy Comedy-Horror Anthology Ordered to Series at Fox
By Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter's 'Live Feed' Blog - Oct. 20, 2014

With Glee's end in sight, Fox is making sure the network stays in business with Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

The network has handed out a straight-to-series order for comedy-horror anthology Scream Queens, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The 15-episode hourlong comedy will premiere in the fall of 2015, with season one revolving around a college campus that's rocked by a series of murders. New settings and storylines will be featured in subsequent seasons of the anthology series.

“I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens,” Murphy said. “We hope to create a whole new genre — comedy-horror — and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and we’re very grateful to [Fox TV Group chairmen and CEOs] Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman] for their enthusiastic support.”

“One of our top priorities at the network has been to get Ryan Murphy to create a new series for Fox. We loved every element of the pitch for this show — the genre-bending concept, which blends true horror with big comedic moments; the diverse and unforgettable characters and reuniting the phenomenal creative team that delivered Glee,” Walden and Newman said. “Scream Queens will go straight to series. It’s a huge commitment and an expression of our faith in Ryan. We are ecstatic to have him, along with Brad, Ian and Dante as our partners on this exciting ride.”

The series hails from 20th Century Fox Television, where Murphy and Falchuk are under rich overall deals. Glee's Murphy, Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto will exec produce.

The series pickup gives Murphy and Falchuk three series on the air — all of them anthologies: FX's American Horror Story, already renewed for a fifth cycle and FX companion series American Crime Story, the latter of which does not yet have a premiere date.

The series order expands Murphy and Falchuk's relationship with Walden and Newman. Both Murphy and Falchuk were key producers at 20th TV for Walden and Newman.

Scream Queens marks the first series order at Fox for the 2015-16 television season — and the first pickup for Walden and Newman as network toppers. The comedy anthology marks the latest straight-to-series pickup for next season, joining NBC's Jennifer Lopez cop drama Shades of Blue, anthology drama Manhunt, as well as mini Heroes: Reborn.

The drama comes as straight-to-series orders have become increasingly popular as broadcast networks dole out larger commitments in a bid to compete with cable and streaming services like Netflix, though the practice hasn't always worked out. NBC recently dropped Wizard of Oz-themed drama Emerald City after handing out a 10-episode straight-to-series order, while Fox axed ancient Egyptian drama Hieroglyph after fully casting the project and filming the pilot.

Murphy is repped by CAA; Falchuk is with WME and Gendler & Kelly.

These are the 10 games CBS/FOX chose to protect from being flexed to SNF.
They can only select 5 each in that 6 week span & only 1 game per week.
Current SNF games looks pretty solid but you never know.
& last yr a protected game did gets flexed but that was the first time that ever happened.

Also this week the sunday 9:30am lions/falcons london game is a national tv game that everyone will get on FOX.

Breakfast at wimbledon....i mean wembley.
