Compared to the much-improved showing a week earlier, Sunday Night Football was off considerably on NBC — though it still easily led the night.

With an average 11.9 overnight rating among households, the Packers-Redskins game is on track to lead the night by all measures. And while improved from the year-ago Sunday match-up for the weekend, it was down 17 percent from last week.

Elsewhere, the American Music Awards averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.2 million viewers. The show helped ABC grab the No. 2 slot for the night but was down considerably from a year ago. (For what it's worth, the AMAs suffered a similar drop after the last election cycle.)

CBS scores are subject to adjustment on account of NFL overrun of its own. With some shifts still to come, 60 Minutes averaged a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49. NCIS: Los Angeles followed a 1.3 rating in the key demo — with Madam Secretary (0.8 adults) and Elementary (0.7 adults) following.

Fox offered up two episodes of Bob's Burgers on Sunday, averaging a respective 1.0 and 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 on either side of a new episode of The Simpsons. Family Guy matched The Simpsons as Fox's top performer of the night with a 1.3 live-plus-same day rating among adults 18-49. The Last Man on Earth fetched a 0.9 rating in the key demo.
