The most-watched show in white homes was the day's other NFL match-up, the Steelers against the Ravens.

Football helped CBS claim the week's most watched TV network title, with 14.2 million viewing 10 of its shows. NBC was second with 9.8 million tuning in nine of its Top 25 shows. ABC, with no "Scandal" for the holiday week, had 6.7 million across five shows.
