U.S. Primetime Broadcast TV Ratings: 12/11 - 12/17/2017

Ratings highlights for the week of December 11, 2017 - December 17, 2017 in the U.S.

NBC led the week in the 18-49 demographic (1.9/8 rating/share) and took second in total viewers (7.81 million viewers), while CBS took second in the demo (1.2/5) and first in viewership (7.93 million). On the sports side, 'Sunday Night Football' (5.9/22, 19.19 million), and 'Thursday Night Football' (2.9/12, 10.64 million), led the way for NBC, and the only scripted series, 'Blindspot' (0.7/3, 3.33 million) did about as well as could be expected. ABC saw success with both 'The Goldbergs' (1.6/7, 6.08 million) and 'Modern Family' (1.7/7, 5.89 million), but a 'Bachelor Countdown' (0.6/2, 2.53 million) special was rather low.

In the 18-49 demo, 'The Big Bang Theory' (2.6/11) and 'Young Sheldon' (2.0/8) led the week for CBS. 'Theory' (13.74 million), 'NCIS' (12.58 million) and 'Sheldon' (11.64 million) topped in total viewers, while 'Madam Secretary' (0.7/3, 5.53 million) and '9JKL' (0.7/3, 4.3 million) provided the week's low-points. FOX's 'Christmas Story Live' (1.5/5, 4.52 million) performed modestly, but 'Empire' (1.9/8, 5.91 million) still topped in the demo and in total viewers. CW's 'Riverdale' (1.43 million viewers) was the top most-viewed scripted series, while 'Dynasty' (685,000) was the lowest.
