The final portion of the Seattle Seahawks at the Washington Redskins on the NFC Wild-Card Game lifted Fox to victory, with a 3.6 metered market household rating point advantage over second-place CBS. Third overall was NBC, which featured the return of The Biggest Loser, followed by ABC.
The NFC Wildcard Game averaged a mammoth 26.7 rating/42 share in the 7 p.m. half-hour on Fox, followed by the post game at a 16.2/25 at 7:30 p.m. That led into Fox’s regularly scheduled animation block – The Simpsons (#1: 6.1/ 9), Bob’s Burgers (#4: 4.2/ 6), Family Guy (#4: 4.8/ 7) and American Dad (#4: 3.8/ 6) – from 8-10 p.m.
On NBC, the season-premiere of aforementioned The Biggest Loser was on the map with a respectable (albeit non-spectacular) 4.7/ 7 in the overnights from 9-11 p.m., which built by seven percent from both the year-ago season-opener (4.4/ 7 on Tuesday 1/03/12) and the year-ago debut of failed legal drama The Firm (4.4/ 7 on Sunday 1/08/12). The Biggest Loser moves into its regularly scheduled Monday 8-10 p.m. time period tonight into the debut of new drama Deception.
Earlier in the evening on NBC last night was a two-hour edition of Dateline at a 4.4/ 7 from 7-9 p.m..
Over at CBS, granddaddy 60 Minutes opened the evening second in the 7 p.m. hour, with a 7.3/13 in the overnights, followed by an encore of Person of Interest (#2t: 5.5/ 8 at 8 p.m.), and the older skewing combination of The Good Wife (7.1/11) and The Mentalist (6.6/11), which won the 9-11 p.m. block.
On ABC, the odd 10-11 p.m. airing of sitcoms Happy Endings (#3: 2.0/ 3) and Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (#3: 1.6/ 3) in place of canceled Park Avenue 666 fell completely flat. Happy Endings dipped by 60 percent from lead-in Revenge (#2: 5.0/ 7 from 9-10 p.m.), which like The Mentalist on CBS has not benefited by moving to Sunday. Earlier in the evening on ABC was a repeat of Once Upon a Time at 7 p.m. (#4: 2.2/ 4), followed by its aforementioned return at a 5.5/ 8 at 8 p.m.
