Football scrambled the Sunday lineup on CBS. The network had planned for its prime-time lineup to begin at 7:30 p.m., but the New England-Pittsburgh game pushed back the start nearly to 8 p.m.

So "60 Minutes," "The Amazing Race" and "The Good Wife" aired one later than usual. CBS confounded "Mentalist" fans by pulling an original Red John-themed episode and substituting a repeat at 11 p.m. ET. That Red John episode, a pivotal one in the series' history, will run this coming weekend.

In Central Florida, "60 Minutes" had the most viewers: 241,600. The New England-Pittsburgh game, which started on CBS before prime time, averaged 225,000 viewers. New England won, 55-31.

NBC's "Sunday Night Football," which offered the Indianapolis-Houston game, averaged 182,000 viewers. Indianapolis won, 27-24.

The other top programs in prime time were AMC's "The Walking Dead" with 172,600 viewers, "The Good Wife" with 148,600 and "The Amazing Race" with 143,400.

Other programs topping the 100,000-mark were ABC's "Once Upon a Time" with 129,800 viewers, NBC's "Football Night in America" with 114,600 and that "Mentalist" repeat with 109,300.

The favorite programs with the 18-to-49 age group were "Sunday Night Football," "The Walking Dead," "Football Night in America," "60 Minutes" and "Once Upon a Time."

Updated national ratings showed the New England-Pittsburgh game averaging 24 million viewers in the 7 p.m. hour for CBS. "Sunday Night Football" averaged 17 million viewers.

The football overrun boosted "60 Minutes" to 15.8 million viewers, "The Amazing Race" to 9.4 million and "The Good Wife" to 10.2 million, its biggest audience this season. ABC's best was "Once Upon a Time" with 7.6 million viewers. Fox's strongest performer was "The Simpsons" with 5.4 million.

The prime-time averages: CBS with 15.6 million, NBC with 14.3 million, ABC with 6.1 million and Fox with 3.9 million. But NBC beat CBS for the win in the 18-to-49 age group.
