CBS once again ruled the ratings last week. It was the most-watched network with an average of 15.19 million viewers, nearly as many as watched NBC (7.18 million), ABC (5.16 million), and Fox (3.67 million) combined. It also came out ahead among the key 18-49 age group, and it aired 8 of the top ten shows for the week, including the No. 1 show, the AFC Divisional Playoff between Indianapolis and New England. Each of the three network evening newscasts finished strongly. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams continued to dominate with 10.7 million viewers. ABC World News with Diane Sawyer was a determined challenger with 9.4 million, while the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley continued to improve with 8.1 million viewers. In overall household ratings, the four major networks lined up this way: 1. CBS, 9.1 rating and a 14 share; 2. NBC, 4.5/7; 3. ABC, 3.3/5; Fox, 2.2/3.
