NETWORK FINALS:  NBC’s NFL PLAYOFFS game adjusted to 12.0.  In addition, FOX’s primetime overrun for the late afternoon game was at 13.1, and adjustment after that pushed THE SIMPSONS down to 2.8, THE MICK  to 1.7 and FAMILY GUY to 1.4.  On ABC, the 9PM TO TELL THE TRUTH and CONVICTION both lost 0.1 in final numbers, as did MADAM SECRETARY and ELEMENTARY on CBS.

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  HBO’s YOUNG POPE premiered at an OK 0.30.  The season premiere of Showtime’s HOMELAND was barely higher at 0.31, down a whopping 0.24 from its last premiere in October 2015 (Showtime would doubtless like it known that the episode had already been available for 2 weeks via streaming/VOD), and it was followed by THE AFFAIR, down 0.04 to 0.17.  

Sunday cable was led by Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA, down 0.06 from last week to 1.00, followed by the premiere of FIRST FAMILY OF HIP-HOP at 0.36.  On TLC, SISTER WIVES slipped 0.02 to 0.54, and LONG LOST FAMILY was at 0.18, with MARRIED BY MOM & DAD down 0.02 to 0.14. Disney Channel’s 9AM MICKEY & THE ROADSTER had a strong showing at 0.54, followed by another episode 25 minutes later at 0.48.  Discovery’s ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER dropped 0.06 to 0.51, and EVEREST RESCUE was down 0.05 to 0.21.  Food Network’s WORST COOKS IN AMERICA lost 0.05 to 0.48, and GUY’S GROCERY GAMES was down 0.12 to 0.29.  Fox Sports 1’s UFC FIGHT NIGHT was at 0.48, with PRELIMS at 0.28.  The first 2-hour night of ID’s IS OJ INNOCENT was at 0.45/0.42. Adult Swim’s SUPERMANSION was down 0.02 to 0.44.  On TNT, THE LIBRARIANS fell a tenth to 0.41.
