eagles cowboys ratings TV ratings: 'Once Upon a Time' holds up well Sunday, Eagles Cowboys leads nightFast national ratings for Sunday, Oct. 30, 2011

ABC got encouraging second-week ratings from “Once Upon a Time” Sunday. The new drama fell a little in total viewers from its premiere but matched its solid adults 18-49 rating. The news wasn’t as good for “Allen Gregory”: FOX’s new animated series debuted to somewhat soft ratings, despite a better-than-usual “Simpsons” lead-in.

NBC averaged 16.8 million viewers and a 10.1 rating/16 share in households to lead Sunday night, beating out the 14.5 million viewers and 9.1/14 for CBS. Both networks were affected by live NFL coverage, so their numbers will change some. ABC (7.9 million, 5.0/8) came in third. FOX trailed with 5.6 million viewers and a 3.2/5.

NBC dominated the adults 18-49 demographic with a 6.7 rating, finishing three points ahead of No. 2 CBS (3.7). FOX scored a 2.7 in the demo to beat out ABC (2.5) for third place.
