The Colts/Titans NFL Network game scored a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating and 5.4 million average viewers (that does not include the viewing on the local broadcast affiliates in the Indianapolis and Nashville markets) down a tenth of a ratings point from the 2.2 rating for Eagles/Texans last week. It still topped all cable for adults 18-49 on Thursday, even though NFL Network is only in about 50% of US TV households.

Burn Notice rebounded from a fall low 1.2 adults 18-49 rating last week to a 1.5 rating and 4.3 million average viewers.

Both Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia slipped a tenth of an adults 18-49 ratings point vs. last Thursday.
