Fox’s NFL Championship Game Coverage Crushes Sunday Ratings

Jan 25, 2010  •  Post A Comment

With a 6:40 p.m. start for the NFC Championship Game between the New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, the spillover into primetime catapulted Fox to the top of the Nielsens for Sunday night, averaging a 19.0 in the 18-49 demographic, according to TVbythenumbers.

At 8 p.m. ABC’s new episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" earned a 2.25 average rating, against reruns on CBS and an NBC "Dateline" that managed a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo.

Another new "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" from 9-10, averaged a 2.6, besting NBC’s coverage of "Figure Skating" which earned a 0.55 average.

From 10-11, NBC’s "Figure Skating" remained in the basement, 0.65 in the 18-49 demo, while the end of the game and the post-game festivities on Fox dominated with a 13.4 average. ABC and CBS showed reruns.

  1. Pop idol hi-jinks generally are not news. I would not worry about how asinine rich and famous women can be.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  3. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  4. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
