Ratings Breakdown:
Fox topped this Golden Globes Sunday thanks to the estimated 24.6 rating/38 share in the household overnights for the conclusion of the NFL Wildcard Game (Green Bay Packers at the Washington Redskins) from 7-8 p.m. The remaining portion of the game coverage scored an 18.3/27 in the 8 p.m. half-hour (shared with a 6.8/20 for “The Simpsons”). Individual series results for Fox are all estimated, of course, and they appear as follows:

Fox/Sunday
8:30 p.m. “The Simpsons”: 4.9/ 7 (#3) / “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life”: 3.7/ 5 (#3)
9:00 p.m. “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life”: 2.8/ 4 (#3), “Family Guy”: 2.8/ 4 (#3)
9:30 p.m. “Family Guy”: 2.6/ 4 (#3), “Bordertown”: 2.6/ 4 (#3)

These second episodes of “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” and “Bordertown” both grew from their anemic week-ago openers (“Cooper Barrett”: 1.7/ 2, “Bordertown”: 1.6/ 2) thanks to the support of football.

On NBC, “The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards,” hosted by Ricky Gervais, dominated with a 13.0/20 in the household overnights from 8-11:06 p.m., which was three percent above the 12.6/19 on the year-ago evening. Comparably, that translated into 19.31 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/16 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data.

Earlier in the evening on NBC was the Golden Globes Arrival Special at a 4.9/ 8 in the 7 p.m. hour.

Elsewhere, CBS finished third for the night with its older skewing line-up of “60 Minutes” (#2: 5.6/ 8), “Madam Secretary” (#3: 6.3/ 9), “The Good Wife” (#2: 5.2/ 8) and “CSI: Cyber” (#2: 4.1/ 7). And ABC barely registered with “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#4: 2.5/ 4), “Galavant” (#4: 1.5/ 2) and two encore telecasts of “Quantico” (9 p.m. #4: 1.1/ 2; 10 p.m.: #3: 1.1/ 2).

  1. FROM NBC

    “THE GOLDEN GLOBES” GROW YEAR-TO-YEAR IN THE METERED MARKETS

    TRIPLES NBC’S TIME-SLOT AVERAGE LAST SEASON EXCLUDING FOOTBALL

    THE “GLOBES” SCORE THE TOP NON-SPORTS RATING IN THE TIME PERIOD FOR ANY BIG 4 NETWORK SINCE LAST FEBRUARY’S “ACADEMY AWARDS”

    Here are “Golden Globes” results from the 56 local
    markets metered by Nielsen, keep in mind that time zone-adjusted fast
    nationals are expected later today.

    NBC’s telecast of “The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards” (13.0 rating, 20 share in households in the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research):

    Is up versus year-ago results in the local markets by +3% (13.0/20 vs. 12.6/19).

    Tops every Golden Globes average in the metered markets from 2008 through 2012 and virtually matches the 2013 rating (13.1).
    ·
    Delivers the highest rating in the time period
    for any Big 4 network, excluding sports, since last February’s “Academy Awards.”

    Triples NBC’s average in the time period last season excluding football (13.0 vs. 4.2).

    Dominates the time period and is the night’s #1 non-sports telecast.
    ·
    Has delivered over the last four years the event’s
    four highest ratings since 2007.

    Note that fast-affiliate ratings (due at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET)
    are not time zone-adjusted and will be unreliable for the live “Golden Globes” telecast.
    Time zone-adjusted fast nationals are expected later today.

  2. I think that that is the first time I have seen AFHV on your losers list, Marc. That is a milestone…a negative one, but still a milestone.
