The Golden Globes were the dominant force on television last night, averaging 17 million viewers and a 5.2 demo rating–down a little from last year, but not greatly.
The other networks aired new episodes, and most fared as normal. Fox and CBS were close to the average, but ABC had a down night. “Desperate Housewives” 3.1 demo was the lowest of its series.
Fox also experienced a huge hiccup with “Bob’s Burgers.” After a monster-debut last week (fueld by the NFL), the show went from a 4.5 to a 2.6, while most of the other shows held strong against the Globes. This doesn’t bode well.
