    Peyton Manning rules Sunday Night Football. Congrats to him. :-)

    • Becky says:

      Actually, the Cowboys rule Sunday night football, even in their bad years.

    • Name That Tune says:

      It was all PFM for me. Class act all the way.

      Sorry, Becky, the Broncos have replaced the Cowboys as America’s Team.

      • Becky says:

        Not even close for the Broncos, especially since the Cowboys now have the best record in the NFL – that is until they implode towards the end of the season!!

        • Name That Tune says:

          Sorry, Becky, but you are living in the past. It’s been well-reported that the Broncos are now America’s team.

          According to USA Today:

          After six consecutive years of living up to their reputation as America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys are suddenly only America’s fourth-favorite NFL franchise. The Denver Broncos top the annual Harris Interactive poll asking Americans to identify their favorite NFL teams, becoming just the fourth team to ever top the poll, joining Dallas, Green Bay (2002-05) and Pittsburgh (2006). Some other highlights from the survey:
          Dallas is also considered America’s least favorite team

          • Becky says:

            Well, the Cowboys have had 17 seasons in a row where they have only made the playoffs 2 times – and they lost both of those games!! But, still at #4 and now that they (at least for now) have the best record in the NFL, they will quickly make it back to the top. That’s why Fox has decided to make them their “national” game most Sundays after their great start to the year. And I was originally talking about being a ratings champ, and being the most loved (almost) and especially the most hated means people tune in to watch them.

    Mulaney had its season cut and the numbers are still floundering. It’s too bad. Despite the show being very awkward it has some funny moments.

  3. Coal says:

    Those are really good numbers for Madam Secretary.

  4. I.R.E. says:

    Yeah I was right about moving Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Sunday nights and it is doing well! I wish they did not cancel Enlisted because it fits well as a pair for B99 and it can support as a strong follow-up for FOX NFL Sunday OT. Right now, we don’t have a choice, but to resurrect Enlisted or reboot it in default!

  5. Joe says:

    Resurrection won’t do well for a while now that The Walking Dead is back

  6. MarkC says:

    Resurrection is really boring. I stopped watching last year then watched last 2 eps. Then watched first two this year. 1 thing happens in each ep. Rest of the time people r just sad n talking.

  7. MarkC says:

    Tried to watch walking dead a few times. Zombies in low budget 70’s makeup just not my thing.

  8. kirads09 says:

    Shame. Resurrection is getting better and better IMO. Loving the addition of Michelle Fairley.

  9. N says:

    Revenge was great!

  10. Fall says:

    That Good Wife episode last night was a freakin joke! Now I know why Archie is leaving, who wants to be known as the bisexual slut in every interview? The writers for this show have become rather lazy. I thought last season was a mess and it looks like this season isn’t far behind. Those Court room scenes were awful and extremely stupid.

  11. Sheldon W. says:

    Could it be that Resurrection lost more than a few viewers when Agent Bellamy became a Returned? It certainly hasn’t helped the series so far, story-wise…

  12. Lily says:

    Yeah…kind of disappointed in the way Resurrection is heading. Not even looking forward to it anymore.

  13. herman1959 says:

    I think Resurrection is getting better all the time with the return of Henry’s mother. Evidently, this weeks football game was more of a draw than last’s. Hopefully, ABC will stick with it until football is over – I really like it.

  14. Sue says:

    You totally forgot to mention that The Walking Dead crushed The Good Wife and even beat Sunday night football in the ratings!
