'The Walking Dead'

For such an early week in the TV season, it wasn’t very eventful, ratings-wise. Football was tops once again for NBC, while CBS did typically well thanks to shows like ‘NCIS,’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and ‘NCIS: Los Angeles.’ Its new comedies, including ‘The Millers’ performed admirably. That show drew 12.3 million viewers. By comparison, ‘Big Bang’ drew nearly 18 million.

Perhaps the biggest story of the week is that AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ continues to amaze. With 14 million viewers, it was good for #7 for the week against the top broadcast networks. That’s not something that the network’s ‘Mad Men’ or even ‘Breaking Bad’ could touch.

ABC was buoyed by ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ ‘Castle’ and ‘Modern Family,’ while FOX didn’t even have an entry in the Top 20.

Here are the week’s top shows:

1. NFL Football: Denver vs. Indianapolis, NBC, 26.9 million
