The peak half-hour was 8 p.m., which scored a 15.9/26 (out of a 27.3/43 for a primetime football overrun in the 7:30 p.m. half-hour). For the complete listing of “Golden Globe” winners, click here.

Elsewhere, second-place CBS had nothing unusual to report with its combination of veteran “60 Minutes” (#2: 5.6/ 9 at 8 p.m.), freshman family drama “God Friended Me” (#2: 5.0/ 8 at 8 p.m.), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#2: 5.1/ 8 at 9 p.m.) and “Madam Secretary” (#2: 4.0/ 7).

On ABC, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” moved into the Sunday 8 p.m. hour with a third-place 2.8/ 4 in the household overnights, which did not benefit lead-out “Shark Tank” (#3: 2.5/ 4 at 9 p.m.). And Fox was at typically depressed Sunday overnight levels. The CW was in repeats.

  1. Was the football game on NBC actually overrun? I think the game was actually scheduled for 4:30-7:30.

    • Yes the football game didn’t end until around 7:45 or 7:50pm I believe so that was the Eagles-Bears game ending just before 8pm.

        • That’s because the program started before primetime hours and bled into primetime hours for the ending of the game. If something starts before primetime and bleeds into primetime hours that’s considered an overrun. It doesn’t have to be scheduled to not be considered an overrun.
