    @Sara, What is Super bowl delay?? anything knows about it?

  • Christian

    Was that the power outage portion? lol

  • Martin

    Why isn’t the post Superbowl Elementary included? – Also it wasn’t even the most watched scripted show on the nefertiti for the week. does anyone have any info for post superbowl shows that had episodes before and after that episode. want to see if there is much of a difference.

  • Reache

    @Martin,
    Elementrey post SB episode aired outside of “primetime(~11:00; it airs 11:11pm)”. That’s why.

  • Max Vrany

    @Martin, it was the top non-sports show with A18-49, but as said, it started outside primetime.

  • MichaelChickless

    With ratings like that, CBS should schedule a power delay every Sunday.

  • Marie

    Do you have numbers for the Super Bowl halftime separately?

    I am hearing Beyonce’s halftime got lower ratings than the game itself.

  • Melissa

    Nice to see The Following in the top ten for adults 18–49!

  • outlawz

    next year i want cbs killing the other network tuesdays to be like this

    08. ncis
    09. new ncis <try la on monday move 5o to other night
    10. vegas 2013(half season) & golden boy (only if peak up for half seaso) if dont and unfogetable do good in the summer then brin it in as (unforgatable summer hit show)

  • Douglas from Brazil

    If Elementary aired live coast-to-coast so should be included in primetime ratings right?
    Cause it started at 11:11pm in East Coast but in West Coast started at 8:11pm or 9:11pm in Mountain,and 10:11pm in Central time zones.So makes sense to be included in data ratings.
