Scoreboard for Tuesday Jan 1, 2008 FOX NBC CBS ABC CW
Total Viewers (million) 11.88 11.07 8.38 6.35 1.40
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 4.7/11 4.3/10 1.9/4 2.2/5 0.5/1

New Year's Bowl games ruled the television world and a bad game between Georgia and Hawaii (OK, I guess we know the truth about Hawaii now) in the Sugar Bowl was enough to win Fox the most overall viewers and the most viewers in the 18-49 demographic. NBC's couples-based season premiere of The Biggest Loser held its own. ABC season premieres of Just for Laughs and According to Jim did not fare as well. Still a little early to decide whether it was just a bad idea to bring these shows back on New Year's night or to bring them back at all, I'm leaning towards the latter though.
