A scripted show besting Sunday Night Football in the adults 18-49 ratings and average viewership for a single week is both historic and very impressive. Doing it two weeks in a row would've been pure Sheenius for Two and a Half Men (minus the "Sheen" that is), but it couldn't quite pull it off as 'Men' trailed SNF by about 4% for the week with adults 18-49. In the bragging rights and press release friendly total viewers though, 'Men' did top Sunday Night Football and everything else for the week.
