Sunday night had two major events: the Golden Globes and the NFL playoffs. The Golden Globes were a huge performer for NBC as the decision to bring back Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts was a good one and the Globes posted their most watched ceremony since 2004 and best demo performance since 2007. I'll bet NBC is glad Tina and Amy are already booked for next year. CBS got the NFL overrun this week and it was huge as expected though slightly below last week's Sunday night wildcard round. The huge lead-in of course helped 60 Minutes to a mammoth uptick as it hit season highs even against the Globes. At 9pm, The Good Wife was up seven tenths in viewers and a big four tenths in the demo for a season high. It may have some of the halo effect from the NFL but that's still an impressive performance against the Golden Globes. At 10pm, The Mentalist was down three tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo.

Over on ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos was down 1.7 million viewers and a big six tenths in the demo as it got mauled by football and the Golden Globes pre-show. Revenge held up OK against the awards as it was down a million viewers but just two tenths in the demo. It could have been worse. At 10pm, Betrayal was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. FOX's animated lineup was of course down from last week's football lead-in, but they held up OK as everything was at least at a 2.0 demo. At 8pm, The Simpsons was understandably down the most as it fell 7.2 million viewers and 2.4 demo points. That might sound huge but last week was so inflated with a direct football lead-in. Bob's Burgers was down 2.2 million viewers and nine tenths in the demo and Family Guy was down six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. The show that was the most removed from the NFL lead-in, American Dad!, was down the least - just half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo.
