Saturday's Jets-Colts Wildcard playoff game topped all viewing in primetime for the week with both adults 18-49 and total viewers.  Fueled by an NFL lead-in Sunday, The Simpsons had its best performance all year and was tops with adults 18-49 among scripted shows.

Charlie Sheen might be self-destructing, but the ratings for  Two and a Half Men aren't.  With no new NCIS last week, Two and a Half Men was the top scripted show with total viewers (and #8 with adults 18-49).
