    That’s really remarkable considering FOX had an NFL game on Saturday night. CBS also had a one hour NFL overrun on Sunday but that’s one hour versus the three that FOX had on Saturday (which is proportionally more important to FOX since they have fewer hours of Primetime than CBS)

  • Cory

    From now on NBC will end at 4th place until The Voice and Revolution return.

    @Ryan CBS had two hours of overrun – the Sunday you mentioned, plus one hour on Saturday when Ravens/Broncos went into OT. Of course, those boffo numbers ALSO brought FOX down Sat night because it ate into first hour of that game.

    I don’t think NBC will necessarily be 4th as Cory says. There will be some weeks where they will come in 3rd. ABC will end the season, overall, #4 and it’s a ? of whether NBC’s earlier stength will be enough for it to come in second or third for the overall 12-13 season. Either way it will be an improvement for the Peacock Network over the last few seasons.
