Fast National ratings for Sunday, January 18, 2015.
The AFC Championship between the Colts and Patriots was a rain-soaked rout, but it still dominated Sunday in all measures and gave a boost to a special, delayed episode of "Scorpion."
Due to the live nature of the football, the late start for "Scorpion" and the fact that the "Scorpion" episode aired in totally different hours for half of the country, these numbers are pretty much wholly unconnected to actual ratings for either the football game or the freshman drama.
[UPDATE: CBS is saying the stand-alone ratings for "Scorpion," which started at 10:28 for much of the country, but 7:28 on the West Coast, include an average audience of 12.29 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among adults 18-49.]
Nearly everybody else got out of the way of the football, other than foolhardy ABC, which got predictably dismal ratings for "Galavant," "Resurrection" and "Revenge."
On to the numbers...
