"SNF" was again the No. 1 show of the night in the metered markets (excludes overruns of NFL day games) on a night that faced original programming including ABC's Oprah Winfrey Christmas special, CBS's 60 Minutes and Fox's The Simpsons, Cleveland Show and Family Guy.

The rating peaked during the second quarter (9:30-10 p.m. ET) at a 14.3/22 when the Eagles took a 30-17 lead. Below are the half-hour ratings (Times ET):
