NBC’s coverage of Sunday’s rescheduled game between the Steelers and Chiefs delivered all-time highs for a primetime NFL Wild Card or Divisional Playoff game in the overnight metered-market numbers.
In fast nationals, the divisional playoff match-up drew 32 million total viewers and a 10.4 demo rating, up from last year’s comparable Packers/Cardinals OT thriller (which on a Saturday did 29.3 mil and a 9.2 in fast nats).
Fox’s coverage of the Cowboys/Packers afternoon thriller, meanwhile, averaged 48.5 mil, making it the most-watched divisional playoff game ever.
Elsewhere in the ratings….
CBS’ bananapants! episode of CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles (8.6 mil/1.0) fell three tenths to what must be a series low. Madam Secretary (7.5 mil/0.8) and Elementary (4.5 mil/0.6) each ticked down a tenth, with at least the latter tying its series low in the demo.
Over on ABC, To Tell the Truth (4 mil/0.8, 3.9 mil/0.9) ticked down from last week’s double pump, while Conviction (2.4 mil/0.5) dipped to its second-smallest audience ever but held steady in the demo.
Fox’s numbers are jumbled due to NFL overrun, but right now The Simpsons (5.8 mil/2.3) is up from its season average. The Mick did 3.7 mil/1.6, while Family Guy (4.3 mil/1.4) slipped week-to-week.
