    Notes: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on preliminary data. Comparisons from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on preliminary data. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final numbers for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final numbers for tonights episode of “AFC Championship Game: New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers” will be reported in next weeks report for Sunday, January 30, 2011. Also keep in mind that because these are preliminary numbers, when the finals are released there may be noticeable changes.

    And lastly, there may be some errors in the data due to rounding/human error. I’ll do my best to limit those mistakes and correct them in time for the next week’s report.
