"Hawaii Five-0" SCORES POST-AFC CHAMPIONSHIP SLOT

CBS announced today that it will broadcast an original episode of HAWAII FIVE-0, the season's #1 new series,  immediately following one of the biggest events in sports — the AFC Championship game, Sunday, Jan. 23, on the CBS Television Network.  THE NFL ON CBS's coverage of the AFC Championship game will begin at 6:30 PM, ET.

HAWAII FIVE-0 averages 13.25 million viewers and dominates its time period in both viewers and key demographics each week.  The top new drama among adults 18-49, H50 is also the most played-back program of the season, averaging an additional 2.97 million viewers per episode when 7-day DVR data is calculated.

A contemporary take on the classic series, HAWAII FIVE-0 is about an elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands' sun-drenched beaches.  The series stars Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, and airs regularly on Mondays at 10:00 PM, ET/PT, on the CBS Television Network.
