Sunday night saw mammoth numbers from the final hour of the 49ers-Packers NFL Wildcard game. It was up from last year's game and delivered a stunning 15.1 demo. As usual, it led to season highs for the animated shows. The Simpsons was up the most as it soared 3.5 million viewers and 1.1 demo points. Bob's Burgers was up eight tenths in viewers and half a demo point. Family Guy was down six tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo as the halo effect was wearing off. American Dad! was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. A Jimmy Fallon special on NBC surprisingly did very well so that bodes well for his transition to host of The Tonight Show in February.

Over on ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos was up two tenths in viewers and the demo from its last new episode. A special leading up to The Bachelor's Monday night premiere at 8pm did well, almost as well as Once Upon a Time in fact. It also seemed to be more compatible with Revenge as Revenge returned up half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since the second week of the season. These sorts of numbers will easily get Revenge renewed but if it drifts back to the 1.4/1.5 territory, who knows. At 10pm, Betrayal was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Over on CBS, The Good Wife was down 1.2 million viewers and two tenths in the demo while The Mentalist was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo.
