Following seasonal trends, football lead the night.  On ESPN, the top game was the Oklahoma Sooners against the West Virginia Mountaineers, with a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic.  This was a full 0.9 better than last week’s NBA broadcast, where the Toronto Raptors played the Boston Celtics and scored a 0.7 to lead the night.

Meanwhile, the Hallmark Channel continued a growing pattern of strong performances, with “Pride, Prejudice, & Mistletoe” receiving a 0.7, just a hair beneath ESPN’s runner-up, “College Football Countdown.”  On Discovery, “Gold Rush” put yet another week in the books at a steady 0.6, about even with its position the last several weeks.  “Live PD” faltered a bit on A&E, stumbling down a tenth to 0.6 from its previous 0.7, though it managed to remain in the top 5.
