It was never in doubt that the NFC Championship (sorry 49ers fans!) would easily win out both with adults 18-49 and total viewers. Outside of sports, American Idol's premiere week took the top two spots with adults 18-49 and viewership. The Big Bang Theory was the week's top scripted show with adults 18-49 and viewership.
