Football Passes Survivor in TV Ratings

The two-hour conclusion of “Survivor: Gabon” on Sunday, on which Bob Crowley, a 57-year-old physics teacher, won the reality competition, attracted 13.8 million viewers, according to Nielsen’s estimates. That was enough to lift CBS to second place in the ratings for the night, behind NBC.

CBS drew considerably higher ratings earlier in the night: roughly 18.7 million viewers tuned in for CBS’s “60 Minutes” after an overrun of afternoon football coverage. NBC led the night over all with the highest-rated “Sunday Night Football” broadcast this season.

The Dallas Cowboys-New York Giants game exceeded the 22.2 million viewers who tuned in to the Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game on Sept. 21. Final numbers were expected Tuesday.
