Most of Hollywood may have been using the Golden Globes as an excuse to party the night away, but viewers at home were more interested in what was happening with football on CBS and ABC's regular Sunday night lineup.
CBS won the night among households with an 11.9 rating/8 share, while ABC came in second with a 10.3/15. NBC was third with a 10.0/15, followed by FOX, 3.6/5, and The WB, 1.8/3.
Things were slightly different among 18 to 49-year-olds. ABC was tops in the demo with a 7.5, while CBS was second with a 6.0 to NBC's 4.8. FOX came in fourth with a 2.8 and The WB lagged with a 1.0.
CBS set the bar at 7 p.m. with the conclusion of the NFL game giving the eye a substantial lead. ABC threw an episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" into the ring, 6.7/11, which was enough to beat NBC's Golden Globe preshow, 6.1/10. "King of the Hill" and "Malcolm in the Middle" averaged a 3.1/5 for FOX, and The WB reaired Part 1 of the "Summerland" pilot for a 1.2/2.
ABC took over at 8 p.m. with a second episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," 11.4/17. The first hour of the Globes took NBC to second place, while "60 Minutes" gave CBS third, 10.5/15. "The Simpsons," 4.9/7, and "Arrested Development," 3.4/5, gave FOX its best hour of the night, while "Charmed," 2.3/3, did the same for The WB.
"Desperate Housewives" proved strong as ever at 9 p.m., 14.4/21, as the Golden Globes mustered a 10.3/15 for the hour. CBS was on the "Cold Case," 9.7/14, and FOX finished its night with a double dose of "Family Guy" averaging a 3.5/5.
