An absolute horrorshow of an NFL game was still good enough to win the broadcast ratings race Sunday night for NBC, yet for NBC execs and viewers, it was a hollow victory. In Nielsen’s preliminary numbers, “Sunday Night Football” notched a 5.4 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 15.89 million viewers.
Final numbers won’t come in until later this afternoon, but they may actually adjust up, given that the game was between two West Coast teams, even though the Seattle Seahawks-Arizona Cardinals match-up was a deathly slog to an overtime tie that ended after midnight on the East Coast. Worse, the final score was an abysmal touchdown-less 6-6.
And yet those early ratings are still actually an improvement on the week before, in which “Snf” garnered its lowest number of eyeballs yet. That was a Colts-Texans match-up, an indication that the teams playing are all that really matters when all is said and done, though »

ABC’s drama problem is no laughing matter.
This Sunday, Once Upon a Time (with 3.4 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating per finals), Secrets and Lies (3.1 mil/0.7) and Quantico (2.8 mil/0.7) all ticked down to series lows. As such, six out of ABC’s seven non-Shonda Rhimes dramas this past week scored a 1.0 rating or lower. (Designated Survivor most recently netted a 1.6.)

Sunday’s all-new episode, “Inside Family Guy” (Fox, 9/8c) is a pseudo-“making of” installment, reminiscent of The Simpsons‘ “Behind the Laughter,” where members of the Griffin family give interviews as if they’re actors on a sitcom.

It’s hard to believe Michael Moore premiered his surprise documentary “Michael Moore In TrumpLand” at New York City’s IFC Theater on Tuesday night, considering that two weeks ago, he hadn’t even begun shooting.
A 73-minute live performance film of Moore doing a one-man show about the upcoming presidential election, the concept was conceived over the course of the past year, but took just two days to shoot. Funded by Img and shot in Wilmington, Ohio on October 6 and 7, the movie was already being edited before almost anyone knew Moore had a project in the works.
On Sunday, a rough cut of the film looked good enough that Moore said he decided on the spot to ask IFC Center General Manager John Vanco if he could host a free premiere event at the theater. »

We originally weren’t going to draw attention to the Late Show return of Laura Benanti‘s fabulous Melania Trump impression, but Stephen Colbert egged us on. (And therefore, it’s really all his fault.)
Benanti returned to CBS’ late-night talker in the wake of Mrs. Donald Trump’s recent interviews, in which she denounced those who accused her husband of sexual violence and said Access Hollywood host Billy Bush encouraged Trump to brag about grabbing women “by the p—y” in a 2005 video. »
You can add Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham to the long list of public figures unimpressed by Donald Trump’s “locker-room talk” excuse. The three actresses all appear in a new video directed by Liz Garbus called “It’s Not Okay,” which consists mainly of women (some of them teenagers) describing their experiences with rape and sexual assault.

“I think people like Donald Trump will never understand the correlation that women understand between words and actions,” one of them says. “Especially when you’re a man in a position of power and you talk that way publicly and say those things, you are telling everyone that it’s okay to behave that way.” Garbus’ prior work includes the documentaries “What Happened, Miss Simone?” and “Bobby Fischer Against the World.”

It’s official: There will be no tomorrow at Today for Billy Bush.
NBC confirmed in a statement to employees on Monday that the network has formally parted ways with the embattled co-host for his role in the Donald Trump tape scandal. According to unconfirmed reports, Bush will receive an exit package worth $10 million.
“Billy Bush will be leaving the Today show’s 9 am hour, effective today,” the statement read. “While he was a new member of the Today team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family. »
Save the Day, the political-action committee launched by Joss Whedon, has released its latest video. Keegan-Michael Peele stars in “Weatherman,” a faux-weather report in which an apocalyptic forecast predicts what might happen should Donald Trump be elected President of the United States next month. Watch it below.
One of the video’s funniest moments comes just as it opens and has nothing to do with the election: “…but, as it turns out, only three of the ferrets were related,” says the reporter who pitches to Key. Among the troubling developments on the forecast: a “heavy wave of denial” coming in both coasts, civil unrest in the South returning to levels unseen since the mid-1960s and smugness descending from Canada. We’re also assured that “the rise in both temperature and existential misery will »

The comedy duo The Good Liars consists of Davram Stiefler and Jason Selvig, two guys who satirize people and organizations through on-the-ground comedy. They started in 2011 posing as investment bankers “protesting” the Occupy Wall Street protests, but have then moved on to other targets, like Time-Warner Cable, Chick-fil-a, and the NRA. But now, the duo have produced a film in which they, along with Roger Ayeels and Jen Richmond (played by “Daily Show” veterans Aasif Mandvi and Jena Friedman), go on the campaign travel to satirize the 2016 presidential election. Combining real footage of the The Good Liars disrupting campaign events and filmed material for the film, Stiefler and Selvig try to get to the heart of the nation through comedy. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Sunday night was the calm before the “Walking Dead” storm that will hit next week for the broadcasters. In preliminary Nielsen ratings, “Sunday Night Football” was the night’s winner, despite its Indianapolis Colts-Houston Texans overtime finisher only drawing 12.95 million total viewers and a 4.9 rating from 8:30 to 11 p.m. (The game didn’t finish until well past the hour.)
Last week, “Snf” had the misfortune of going up against the second presidential debate, but still drew a 5.2 in the demo and 15 million viewers in Nielsen’s preliminary ratings. (It ended up with a 6.7 rating in the demo and 18.06 million viewers once the final viewership was tallied.)
This week’s “Snf” game went up against the second game of the Mlb’s highly anticipated National Championship League Series, in which the L.A. Dodgers eked out a win over the Chicago Cubs to tie the series 1-1. The game notched a 5.0 household rating on FS1 in Nielsen »

Donald Trump’s infamous conversation with former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush is enough to make Peter Griffin, the brash, crude blue-collar main character on “Family Guy,” blush. In a hilarious new spoof video that puts the character voiced by Seth MacFarlane on the bus where Trump described his ability to grope women without consequence in 2005, Griffin prompts Trump to see if he wants to engage in some “locker room talk.”
