NFL Game Helps Five-0 Tackle Ratings Highs

When it comes to this Sunday night’s ratings, there was CBS… and everyone else.

The Eye’s coverage of the AFC Championship game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets averaged 48.4 million total viewers from 7 to 10 pm, and a mighty 17.3 rating in the 18-to-49 demo.

Also, the sometimes nailbiting match-up’s overnight household rating (31.3) represented a 24-year high for an AFC Championship game.

Leading out of the pigskin playoff, a special Sunday showing of Hawaii Five-0 netted the freshman drama all-time highs in total viewers (17.7 million) and the demo.

What else is there to say? Well, NBC’s airing of the first Sex and the City movie averaged 3.22 million viewers, experiencing a small surge at 10 ‘clock, once footballphobes seized control of the remote.
