Oregon’s overtime loss lifts ABC to victory
November 19, 2012
No. 2 Oregon lost its first college football game of the season on Saturday night in an exciting overtime battle with Stanford that helped ABC to an easy first-place finish for the night.
The network averaged a 2.2 rating and 7 share in primetime among viewers 18-49, according to Nielsen overnights, well ahead CBS, Fox and Univision, which all tied for second at 0.8/2. NBC was fifth at 0.6/2 and Telemundo sixth at 0.5/2.
As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won't be available for several weeks. Forty-six percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.
Also, ratings for ABC and Fox's college football coverage are approximate as fast nationals measure timeslot and not actual program data.
ABC finished first each hour, beginning with a 2.2 at 8 p.m. for football, followed by Fox with a 0.9 for its own football game. Univision and Telemundo tied for third at 0.7, Univision for "Sabado Gigante" and Telemundo for a Mexican league soccer match, with CBS fifth with a 0.6 for a repeat of "Elementary" and NBC sixth with a 0.5 for a "Revolution" rerun.
At 9 p.m. ABC led with a 2.0 for football, while CBS and Univision tied for second at 0.8, CBS for "48 Hours" and Univision for "Sabado." Fox was fourth with a 0.7 for football, Telemundo fifth with a 0.6 for soccer and NBC sixth with a 0.5 for a repeat of "Chicago Fire."
ABC was first again at 10 p.m. with a 2.4 for football, with CBS second with a 1.1 for more "48 Hours." Univision was third with a 0.8 for "Sabado," NBC fourth with a 0.7 for a rerun of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and Telemundo fifth with a 0.3 for "La Santa Muerte."
ABC also finished first for the night among households with a 4.0 average overnight rating and a 7 share. CBS was second at 3.0/5, Fox third at 1.8/3, NBC fourth at 1.7/3, Univision fifth at 1.1/2 and Telemundo sixth at 0.5/1.
