amazing race 23 finale ratings TV ratings: 'Amazing Race' finale down, 'Family Guy' up Sunday

Fast National ratings for Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013
FOX’s animation lineup got a boost Sunday from an NFL lead-in as “Bob’s Burgers,” “Family Guy” and American Dad” were all up from their most recent outings and “The Simpsons” was even.
The finale of “The Amazing Race” on CBS, however took a hit in adults 18-49, falling half a point compared to last fall’s final episode. (The network’s primetime was delayed in a number of markets, so its numbers will change some in the final overnights.) NBC led per usual with “Sunday Night Football,” and “Once Upon a Time” was up some for ABC.
NBC delivered 13.8 million viewers and an 8.3 rating/13 share in households for the night, pending updates for its live NFL telecast. CBS (9.9 million, 6.0/9) came in second, beating out FOX’s 8.5 million and 5.0/7. ABC (5.7 million, 3.6/5) trailed.

The Peacock also led the 18-49 demographic with a 4.9 rating. FOX came in second with a 3.3, followed by CBS, 2.0, and ABC, 1.5.
