The NFL does rule, at least when it's the New England Patriots versus the Dallas Cowboys. Desperate Housewives did win its time slot in both categories, but football overrun had many more viewers. How did the shows do?
Cold Case and Shark net some large numbers for CBS but the ABC tag-team of Housewives and Brothers and Sisters slaps CBS around in the 18-49 demo. Fox runs a mostly re-run filled night of cartoons and still is in way better shape than the CW.
