Ignited by the 7-8 p.m. NFL primetime overrun (approximate 22.4/35), Fox finished a solid second in the household overnights for this first Sunday in January. Granddaddy “The Simpsons” got a boost in the 8 p.m. half-hour, with a 6.5/10 (#2). And that led into regularly scheduled comedies “Ghosted” (#4: 3.1/ 5), “Family Guy” (#4: 2.5/ 4) and “Last Man on Earth” (#4: 2.1/ 3) from 8:30-10 p.m.

CBS was next with its regularly scheduled line-up of “60 Minutes” (#2: 5.9/ 9 at 7 p.m.), canceled “Wisdom of the Crowd” (#3: 3.8/ 6 at 8 p.m.), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#2: 5.2/ 8 at 9 p.m.) and “Madam Secretary” (#2: 4.2/ 7 at 10 p.m.). And ABC capped off the evening with two episodes (original and repeat) of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (7 p.m. R: #3, 2.5/ 4; 8 p.m.: #4 3.3/ 5) and two original episodes of “Shark Tank” (9 p.m.: #3: 3.0/ 5; 10 p.m.: #3: 2.6/ 5), which seemed completely wasted opposite “The Golden Globes.”

  1. I may be the only one, but I am sick of politics and these sexual harassment charges during award shows. I muted the entire show except for the few awards with people I like. I tune into TV to escape politics and this nonsense. For me enough is enough. I will start turning off my TV and I am done with the Golden Globes. If you wanna use a platform for politics and other issues go on a talk show and do that. An award show for me is not the time to do that.The show itself SUCKED.
