The two NFL playoff games that aired in primetime the week of Jan. 9 didn’t add much audience — per usual with live sports — with a few days of DVR and on-demand viewing. They’re still way out in front of everything else, however, with NBC’s Steelers-Chiefs telecast at a 12.0 rating in adults 18-49 and CBS’ Texans-Patriots game at 9.4.

“This Is Us” was the biggest gainer of the week and finished behind the two football games in both adults 18-49 and viewers. It rose from a 3.0 to a 4.6 in the 18-49 demographic and from 10.48 million to 14.73 million viewers.

“Modern Family” (3.5) and “The Simpsons” (3.0) round out the Top 5 in 18-49, while “Blue Bloods” (13.95 million) and “Hawaii Five-0” (12.25 million) fourth and fifth in viewers.
