simpsons treehouse of horror 2013 ratings TV ratings: NFL and 'Treehouse of Horror' lead Sunday, 'Revenge' and 'Betrayal' dipFast National ratings for Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013

NFL games dominated the ratings Sunday night, with NBC’s prime-time telecast drawing its usual solid numbers (though a blowout game drove it down a little vs. last week) and a late-afternoon game spilling into the evening giving CBS a big boost.

Also Sunday, “The Simpsons'” annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode scored the best adults 18-49 rating of all the non-football programming for the night. “Once Upon a Time” was fairly steady for ABC, but “Revenge” and “Betrayal” both fell off from last week’s premieres.

CBS currently stands in the lead among total viewers with 15.2 million and a 9.3 rating/15 share in households, but those numbers will change with the late-afternoon NFL runover and a couple of affiliates airing another evening game. NBC (12.6 million, 7.5/12) came in second, with its numbers also subject to change. ABC (5.3 million, 3.3/5) was a ways back in third, and FOX trailed with 4.6 million viewers and a 2.7/4.

NBC led the 18-49 demographic with a 4.9 rating, beating CBS’ 3.8. FOX finished third with a 2.1, and ABC posted a 1.5.
