    CBS only got 4.2 because of the AFC championship.

    FOX came in second with a 2.6 … and NBC was fourth with a 1.2 average

    FOX needing to average 0.5 better than NBC each week to beat them for the season is off to a good start…

    Wow at NBC. A 1.2 is pathetic.

    Damn,NBC starting to feel the effects of not having no more football on this season. Not even the Pro Bowl won’t be enough for them because it is an exitbition game. And, when The Voice and Revoluiton return in march, WIll the additions of Usher and Shkira be able to replace both X-Tina and CEE-LO? Now the AI is back and with the reality singing compentition show over-satution as a whole could turn off some viewers. Will the viewers come back for more of Revolution after it has been benched for about 3-4 months, or will the viewers just say forget it? My prediction is that NBC will finnish at either number 2 or number 3 in the demos this season thanks to the SuperBowl on CBS and FOX’s AI cutting into NBC fall ratings gains.
