[EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming, Fast Nationals for FOX (from 7-7:30p), CBS and NBC are approximate. On CBS, the NFL Over-run aired until approximately 8:03p.]

NBC (16.498 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 6.0, #1) held off the competition on Sunday with its mix of "Football Night in America #1" (6.037 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 1.8, #6), "Football Night in America #2" (7.516 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 2.5, #5), "Football Night in America #3" (14.528 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 5.0, #3) and "Sunday Night Football" (18.689 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 6.9, #1).

CBS (16.279 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 4.8, #2) then served up the silver with a full hour of "NFL Overrun" (19.234 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 6.1, #2) followed by "The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards" (15.294 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 4.3, #4).

Here are the highlights of the 19 ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (9/23/12):

[EDITOR'S NOTE #1: Due to the nature of live programming, Fast Nationals for FOX (from 7-730p), ABC, CBS and NBC are approximate. On CBS, the NFL Overrun ran until approximately 8:07p with entertainment prime sliding.]

[EDITOR'S NOTE #2: The Emmy Awards aired live across the country and the time-period based Fast Affiliate Ratings are inaccurate, since they don't include pre-prime viewing in the Pacific and Mountain time zones. ABC has ordered true Fast Nationals from Nielsen, which will account for the pre-prime viewing and be sent out later this morning in a press release.]
