-Ratings Breakdown:
NBC aired The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards, but the approximate 7-8 p.m. portion of the NFC Divisional Playoff Game led Fox to Sunday overnight victory. The New York Giants vs. Green Bay went through the roof, so to speak, with a 29.1 rating/45 share in the hour. That lifted lead-out The Simpsons to a season high 10.2/15 (#2) at 8 p.m. followed by the series-premiere of animated Napoleon Dynamite at a 6.0/ 9 at 8:30 p.m. Comparably, Napoleon Dynamite finished fourth in the overnights at 8:30 p.m., with retention out of The Simpsons of 59 percent. While the retention could have been better, Napoleon Dynamite was indeed sampled.

Next on Fox was Family Guy at a 5.5/ 8 (#3) at 9 p.m., followed by a second episode of Napoleon Dynamite at a 4.5/ 7 (#4) at 9:30 p.m.

Over at NBC, aforementioned The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards led the 8-11 p.m. block, with a solid 11.7 rating/18 share and the half-hour breakdown as follows:

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards (NBC)
8:00 p.m.: 11.2/17 (#1)
8:30 p.m.: 11.5/17 (#1)
9:00 p.m.: 11.3/17 (#1)
9:30 p.m.: 11.5/17 (#1)
10:00 p.m.: 12.8/20 (#1)
10:30 p.m.: 12.1/20 (#1)

For a listing of all the Golden Globe winners in television, scroll down to Network Short Items. Earlier in the evening on NBC was the Golden Globes Red Arrival special at a third-place 3.8/ 6 from 7-8 p.m.

In season-premiere news, Undercover Boss returned on CBS with a second-place 7.3/11 in the overnights at 8 p.m., which is certainly respectable given the competition. Comparably, that was equal to the 7:30 p.m. portion of 60 Minutes and it is expected to build considerably among adults 18-49. Overall, 60 Minutes finished second from 7-8 p.m. with a 6.7/10.

Also on CBS was older-skewing The Good Wife at 9 p.m. (#2: 6.8/10) and a repeat of CSI: Miami at 10 p.m. (#2: 5.0/ 8).

Fourth overall for the evening was ABC, meanwhile, with its combination of America’s Funniest Home Videos (#4: 2.9/ 5), which took a hit opposite football on Fox, freshman hit Once Upon a Time (#3: 6.1/ 9), Desperate Housewives (#3; 5.3/ and failed recent entry Pan Am (#3: 2.9/ 5). As a reminder, new drama GBC debuts in the Sunday 10 p.m. hour on March 4.
