Without Monday Night Football, college Bowl Game action led the way, although it wasn't as dominant. The season finale of Zoey 101 on Nickelodeon pulled in more than double its regular viewers. Perhaps the hordes were looking in to see if Jamie Lynn Spears was showing yet. Zoey and Spears finished less than 250,000 viewers behind the Clemson vs. Auburn action on ESPN. ESPN took four of the top ten spots with two other Bowl Games and the New Year: No Limit New Year's Special. I Love New York 2 also fared well, finishing in 5th place.
The usual fare of SpongeBob, Hannah Montana and WWE: RAW were joined by a couple of episodes of Gorman favorite, Law & Order on TNT. iCarly was back on the list for Nickelodeon.
