Ratings Report:

  • FOX easily led the night, scoring a 11.7 in adults 18-49 with 36.47 million people watching the Philadephia Eagles beat the Minnesota Vikings, 38-7 (yeesh, did the Vikings even show up to this game?). Compared to the 2016 AFC Championship on CBS, this game is down about 12% in metered-martket households. On the upside, new medical drama THE RESIDENT premiered to a 2.7, currently tied with The Orville for second-best series premiere all season.
  • Only ABC had original programming against the NFC Championship on Fox, and its lineup of AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS (0.8) and back-to-back SHARK TANKS (1.0 for both episodes) were all down a couple of tenths from last week.

Of Note:

  • TNT led Thursday once again with coverage of the NBA Timberwolves vs. Rockets game, which scored a 0.6 rating with adults 18-49 and 1.499 million people watching. Right behind in the number two spot was LIP SYNC BATTLE on the recently rebranded Paramount Network (formerly Spike). The show scored a 0.5 with a special tribute to Michael Jackson (check out Hailee Steinfeld’s killer performance of The Way You Make Me Feel HERE). Rounding out the top three was coverage of the NBA game between the 76ers and Celtics, which also scored a 0.5.
  • THE FIRST 48 on A&E stayed steady for a fourth week in a row, earning a 0.4; 60 DAYS IN also stayed even with last week (another 0.4).
  • Maddow beat Hannity on ratings for cable news (0.4 to 0.3), but Hannity is still winning in terms of sheer audience size, with 3.641 million watching the conservative broadcast while Maddow was viewed by 3.104 million.
