NETWORK UPDATE: The AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME adjusted to 13.9, which is a huge number, but far below the 19.0 for last year’s primetime NFC game. The post-game SCORPION was up 0.2 from early numbers to 3.2. RESURRECTION rose 0.1 to 0.8. Even though it fell 0.3 in adjusted numbers, the viewers of the afternoon NFC game on FOX hung around sufficiently for MULANEY to retain a 1.2 rating, tremendous by its standards. The 8PM rerun of THE SIMPSONS and NBC’s run of BRIDESMAIDS both gained 0.1.
