once upon a time 1106 rtgs TV ratings: 'Once Upon a Time' solid again Sunday, NFL scores for NBCFast national ratings for Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011

“Once Upon a Time” is proving to be a very consistent performer early in its life on ABC. The show posted solid ratings for the third week in a row Sunday, beating everything that wasn’t the Ravens-Steelers game in its timeslot. The news wasn’t as good for the rest of ABC’s lineup, though, as “Desperate Housewives” was off a bit from last week and “Pan Am” was flat in adults 18-49 and down a tick in viewers.

Elsewhere, “Sunday Night Football” gave NBC another victory for the night, while FOX also got a bump from NFL games bleeding into primetime — although “Allen Gregory” continued to struggle. CBS was its usual steady self.

NBC led the night with 16.35 million viewers and a 9.8 rating/15 share in households, numbers that will likely rise when its live NFL broadcast is accounted for. FOX (10.9 million, 6.3/9) currently stands in second, but since it had some live football as well, CBS (10.3 million, 6.6/10) could overtake it in the final nationals. ABC drew 7.35 million viewers and a 4.6/7.

The Peacock also dominated the adults 18-49 demographic with a 6.3 rating. FOX is second for now with a 4.6. ABC came in third for the night with a 2.4, and CBS scored a 2.2.
