The AFC Championship game helped CBS to a big win in the weekly ratings for Jan. 16-22, but it wasn’t the only thing the network had going for it.

With the post-football premiere of “Hunted” and “The Big Bang Theory” and “NCIS” also airing new episodes, CBS led across the board in both adults 18-49 (3.3 average for the week, three times the 1.1 for second-place ABC) and viewers (13.3 million, almost three times as much as NBC’s 4.59 million).

The Eye had eight shows (including ties) among the Top 10 in adults 18-49 and nine of the Top 10 in viewers.

Here are the network standings for the week of Jan. 16-22 and the season to date.
