Scripted broadcast programming was left in the dust by another great week of The Walking Dead and the huge Broncos-Colts game on NBC which delivered a season high and astonishing 10.0 demo. CBS had an NFL overrun but it didn't give as much power as usual. 60 Minutes was down a full demo point from the last time it followed the NFL. At 8:30pm, The Amazing Race was up eight tenths in viewers and even in the demo even though its lead-in was up 1.3 demo points. This is a real disappointing performance. At 9:30pm, The Good Wife was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. This show always seems to do better when it starts closer to 10pm. At 10:30pm, The Mentalist was down 1.6 million viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. I think this show is definitely a goner after this year while The Good Wife could still go either way.

ABC had a pretty bad night. At 7pm, America's Funniest Home Videos was up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time dropped four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. It seems very likely that this show will fall into the 1s this year which it just barely avoided last season. At 9pm, Revenge was up two tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. I know it's a third year show which means it will likely get renewed for a fourth season for syndication reasons. But this show is falling fast and I think it'll get pretty ugly if it goes another year. At 10pm, Betrayal inched up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The rise might buy it some time but it's not going beyond its 13 episode order with these numbers.
