'Undercover Boss' hits series low opposite football and baseball

Serious competition from NFL football on NBC and Game 4 of the World Series on Fox wreaked havoc on on CBS’ The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss. The competition show at 8 p.m. averaged 2.9 rating/7 share in 18-49 — down 17% from last week and also a season low, according to early estimates from Nielsen. It averaged 9.1 million. At 9, Boss earned a 2.9/7 — down 10% to its lowest-rated telecast ever. The sophomore show averaged 10.3 million. CSI: Miami at 10, meanwhile earned a 2.6/7 and averaged 9.8 million. Each 18-49 ratings point represents 1.3 million. But hey, it’s not so easy to go up against football and baseball. Fox ruled the night in viewers (15.2 million) but NBC won the night in the 18-49 demographic (5.2/14) because of the matchup between the last two Super Bowl victors, the Steelers and the Saints. The game itself averaged a 6.6/17 in the demographic. Fox came in second in the demo (4.7/13) because Game 4 earned a 4.3 rating. CBS was third with a 2.4/7 and 10.0 million eyeball.s As for ABC, which finished fourth with a 2.2/6 and 7.9 million, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition finished with a 1.8/5 and 6.6 million viewers, followed by Desperate Housewives (3.5/9, 10.9 million) and Brothers & Sisters (2.3/6, 8.1 million).

Amazing Race's Connor and Jonathan: Sled Inconsistency "Screwed Us Over"

Despite going from first to last, Ivy League a cappella singers Connor Diemand-Yauman and Jonathan Schwartz ended their Amazing Race run on a high note, serenading Phil Keoghan at the Pit Stop. "We knew we wanted to sing for Phil and we knew it would be poetic if we sang if and when we were eliminated," Schwartz tells TVGuide.com. "Because it was on our graduation day [from Princeton University], we thought it was a cool, ironic moment. There was no sadness, no tears." But there were still moments the 22-year-olds "would rather forget" on the show's first-ever trip to the Arctic Circle. To Read More Click Here.

After scoring the first tickets on the first flight to London on The Amazing Race 17, Ron Kellum, 45, and Tony Stovall, 42, quickly saw their fortunes take a turn for the worst once they landed.

"We just kept marveling, like, how did this happen?" Ron tells us. "In Boston, getting to the airport, we were the only team that didn't make a wrong turn.

Ratings: Football Still Rules, While Family Guy and Dexter Post Strong Showings

Another Sunday, another ratings win for NBC. Sunday Night Football, featuring the New York Jets vs. the Miami Dolphins, dominated the evening, giving NBC an easy victory, with 15.9 million viewers and a 6.5 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic on a night when no new series debuted. Fox's hourlong Family Guy posted the best showing among scripted fare, according to early Nielsen estimates, with 9.1 million and a 4.5 rating, despite dropping 13 percent from last year. It was preceded by The Simpsons (7.8 million viewers, 3.7 rating) and The Cleveland Show (6.6 million, 3.1 rating), both of which were also down significantly versus last year. Still, CBS likely placed second, but its prime-time lineup was affected by a National Football League overrun. 60 Minutes, which ran from 7:47 to 8:47 p.m., drew 13.9 million viewers and a 3.8 rating, while a 90-minute premiere of The Amazing Race 17 and Undercover Boss both earned about 11 million and a 3.6 rating. ABC's Sunday flagship Desperate Housewives was the network's top show of the night. The seventh season opened to 12.8 million with a 4.2 rating, but was down about 11 percent from last year. Housewives was bookended by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (8.4 million, 2.5 rating), which was also down from a year ago, and Brothers & Sisters (9.6 million, 3.0 rating), which was on par with last year's premiere. In cable news, the Season 5 premiere of Dexter pulled in 2.3 million viewers to give Showtime its biggest season premiere in 15 years. Source Here
