'Roseanne' (ABC)

The return of "Roseanne" to primetime was a major win, at first. It had more than 18 million viewers, and it looked like Roseanne Barr was back to dominate the sitcom world. However, her racist remarks about former President Barack Obama's adviser, Valeri Jarrett, led to her firing. A continuation of the series, called "The Connors" is back in place of "Roseanne" for the rest of the cast.

NBC 'Sunday Night Football' (NBC)

NBC's "Sunday Night Football" usually features some great matchups and viewers tuned in frequently. The Week 14 game had an estimated 19.4 million viewers who watched the Chicago Bears pick up a defensive win over the Los Angeles Rams. They'll end the season with a big game involving the Colts and Titans for a trip to the playoffs.
