(fast national numbers for sunday, november 6, 2011)

Here are the highlights of the 18 ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night:

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to live NFL coverage, Fast Nationals are approximate for FOX during the 7p hour and on the night for NBC. Due to local NFL overrun until roughly 7:30p in at least 12.7% of the country, Fast Nationals for CBS are approximate on the night.]
