Football in any language wins and this is the case with college football with Boise State and TCU where Boise won 17-10. FOX’s TOSTITOS FIESTA BOWL won the night among Adults 18-49, Total Viewers, Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54, Teens and all key male demos. The TOSTITOS FIESTA BOWL posted an approximate 4.4/11 among Adults 18-49 from 8:30-11p and will likely grow with the finals, marking an increase from last year’s second Bowl game, the Allstate Sugar Bowl on 1/2/09 (4.3/12).
ABC’s two-hour premiere of The Bachelor 14 posted a 3.3/8, up slightly from its cycle 13 debut on the same night last year (3.1/8 on 1/5/09). At 10p, reality special Conveyor Belt Of Love delivered a 2.7/7.
CBS aired repeats of How I Met Your Mother (2.3/6), Accidentally on Purpose (2.1/5), Two & A Half Men (3.2/8), Big Bang Theory (3.5/8) and CSI: Miami (2.4/6).
NBC’s two-hour Heroes (2.2/5) matched its lowest original rating ever, down -12% from its average earlier this season (2.5/6). The Jay Leno Show (1.5/4) was on par at 10p.
Due to the nature of live sports, Fast Nationals for FOX are approximate. FOX’s TOSTITOS FIESTA BOWL Pre-game aired until 8:22p and the FIESTA BOWL GAME ran 8:22-11:51p.
