Charmed recorded its smallest audience of the season Sunday for The CW, while NBC's Sunday Night Football continued its strong run for the season.

The other networks were in line with their usual Sunday numbers, though Fox's animated shows tied season lows. 

Sunday Night Football stayed on trend with year-over-year gains for NBC. The network's Packers-Vikings telecast drew a 13.2 household rating in metered markets, an 8 percent improvement on the 12.2 for the same week in 2017 (Packers-Steelers).

Charmed drew a 0.2 rating among adults 18-49 on The CW after four weeks at 0.3. It's a season low for the series. Supergirl held at 0.3.

CBS' late-afternoon NFL game ran into primetime, giving its lineup the usual boost. Pending updates, 60 Minutes (2.1), God Friended Me (1.0), NCIS: Los Angeles (0.8) and Madam Secretary (0.6) are all on par with the last NFL doubleheader weekend on the network.

America's Funniest Home Videos earned a season-high 0.9 in the 18-49 demo and had its biggest total audience (6.22 million) since November 2016. The gains didn't translate to Dancing With the Stars: Juniors (0.6) and Shark Tank (0.7), both of which dipped slightly.

The Simpsons and Bob's Burgers (0.9 each) tied their season lows in adults 18-49 on Fox. Family Guy and Rel were reruns.

NBC coasted to victory among adults 18-49 for the night with a 4.6 rating, pending updates. CBS is second at 1.8, also pending updates, followed by ABC, 0.7; Fox, 0.6, and The CW, 0.3.
