Final Broadcast Ratings: January 22, 2017

With a primetime airing of the AFC Championship game, CBS dominated the Sunday night ratings. It was the only network with original programming on the night, except FOX airing a new episode of SON OF ZORN in the middle of encores.

The AFC Championship game was a blow out, as the Patriots beat the Steelers, 36-17, as 48.0 million viewers watched from 6:45 to 9:45 PM. Compared to last year's NFC game, on FOX, viewership is slightly up 2.3 million viewers, but the A18-49 demo is down three-tenths of a point (-2%).

CBS used the hot post-game slot for the new series, HUNTED. The premiere drew 11.8 million viewers and a 4.1 rating in Adults 18-49. Last year, THE X-FILES revival premiere drew 16.2 million viewers and a 6.1 demo rating in the early ratings. HUNTED settles into its Wednesday, 8 PM time slot this week.

SON OF ZORN, on FOX did little more than look to be burn-off programming for FOX. Why else air a new episode, against a huge NFL game, surrounded by encores?
