NOTE TO READERS:  Beginning with the Monday cable post this afternoon, and for the rest of the week, charts will be posted as usual, but text (and responses to Comments) will be much delayed if they appear at all, due to our Sundance coverage.

NETWORK FINALS:  CBS’s AFC CHAMPIONSHIP game adjusted to 15.4, and HUNTED went up to 4.1 with West Coast numbers added.  On FOX, the 7PM SON OF ZORN rerun lost 0.1, as did ABC’s AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOMEVIDEOS rerun.
