The Fox (FOXA) network had a week to remember with ratings that nearly topped the combined effort of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
The NFC Championship football game delivered a massive 47 share in the adults 18-49 category - while the return of The Following and American Idol kept the momentum going.
Weekly viewer tally: Fox 17.24M; CBS 8.36M; ABC 5.15M; NBC 4.59M; Univision 2.74M.
What to watch: Though the smashing performance only covers one week, Fox has the Super Bowl broadcast this year to give it another crack at promoting its slate of shows. Analysts say early response has been positive.
