Ratings: 'Amazing Race' Finale Slides as NBC Wins With Football

Dec 10 (TheWrap.com) - The season finale of CBS's "The Amazing Race" slid 21 percent from last year's send-off to tie the show's previous low for a finale, while NBC took an expected win on the strength of "Sunday Night Football," according to preliminary numbers.

While NBC's numbers are approximate due to the nature of live sports, the network holds a commanding first place in the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers with a 5.7 rating/14 share and in total viewers with 15.9 million total viewers. Following three consecutive episodes of "Football Night in America" from 7 to 8:30 p.m., which drew a 2.3/6, 3.3/9 and 5.4/13, the game between Green Bay and Detroit inched up from last week's "Sunday Night Football" at 8:30, posting a 6.9/17 and 18.9 million total viewers.

NFL overrun from 7 to 7:30 had a 6.1/17 with 17.3 million total viewers, while overrun combined with "The O.T" at 7:30 had a 4.3/11 with 11.6 million total viewers. "The Simpsons at 8 inched up from its last original airing two weeks ago for a 3.4/9 and had 7.5 million total viewers. "Bob's Burgers" at 8:30 jumped 17 percent to a 2.1/5 and took 4.6 million total viewers, while "Family Guy" at 9 had a 2.8/7 with 5.6 million total viewers.

Amazing Race shocker finale ratings disappoint

CBS’ Amazing Race delivered a surprising finale last night when the underdog Beekmans came from behind to win the million. But the show’s ratings? Those were a bit more predictable, unfortunately.
The two-hour Race closer had 9.3 million viewers and a 2.6 rating in the adult demo, down 21 percent and ranking and tied as the show’s lowest-rated finale ever. The strong lead-in didn’t help The Mentalist, which was down 11 percent from its last original.

CBS   
7-8P   60 MINUTES              #12   1.9   11,766
8-10P   AMAZING RACE      #8   2.6   9,337
10-11P   MENTALIST      #14   1.6   7,891

Among non-sports programming, The Simpsons won Sunday night thanks to a strong football lead-in.

That's more disappoint ratings!

LoveRocked:
Green Bay Packers vs. the 'Amazing' 'gay guys'

"The Amazing Race" victory by a former Oconomowoc resident, Josh Kilmer-Purcell, and his partner, known as the Beekman Boys,  put the amazing in the show's title Sunday night.

Kilmer-Purcell and his partner, Brent Ridge, won the $1 million competition in which multiple teams of two race around the world completing arduous tasks.

They were dismissed as the weakest team by other contestants - who called them "the gay guys" - until the final task, which required contestants apply brain instead of brawn.

They beat out two likable young sweethearts and two cocky Chippendale dancers. The surprise result was a bit like the nerds beating the popular kids in high school.

The two-hour episode itself, however, was cursed.

It aired opposite the Green Bay Packers game against the Detroit Lions on NBC, and its start was delayed because of a "60 Minutes" overrun. Both contributed to the show's 21% drop in ratings from last year's finale, which, coincidentally, was won by a Madison couple.

According to The Wrap.com, the finale earned a 2.6 rating and drew 9.3 million viewers.

The Packers game, on the other hand, dominated the night - as expected. NBC's "Sunday Night Football" telecast averaged 15.9 million viewers, peaking at more than 20 million at the start of the game nationally. About a half-million of them live in the Milwaukee area.

The game averaged a 52.7 rating on WTMJ-TV (Channel 4), or the equivalent of 479,000 television households. A local rating point represents 9,100 homes. The game's rating peaked at 55.5 - or 505,050 households - at 9 p.m.

"The Amazing Race" averaged a 4.6 on WDJT-TV (Channel 58), or 41,860 TV households, but some people may have recorded it on their DVR while watching the game.

I know people are gonna tell me I am wrong, but I think the fact that the twinnies were saved by a NEL was the main reason the ratings dropped.

I doubt that. It was the football game that dropped viewers. The sisters made this season entertaining

I know that, but the twinnies got MAJOR hate on facebook. Now that I think about it, it was probably a combo of football + twinnies. By the way, the Chippendales made this seaosn entertaining.
