Sunday TV Ratings 1/24/21: FBI Has OK Airing Behind AFC Championship Game, The Rookie Slips but Still Doubles Card Sharks, Charmed Returns Low (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: CBS posted a monstrous 9.9 rating with their broadcast of the AFC Championship game and used that mammoth number to boost an original episode of 'FBI' (2.1). The latter performed about as well as expected and easily cemented a new series high. ABC's lineup crumbled opposite the game as 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' (0.3), 'Card Sharks' (0.2), and 'The Rookie' (0.4) each lost a tenth. A repeat of 'AFV' (0.4) garnered a decent number in the 7pm hour. Fox was entirely in repeat-mode with a 7pm 'Great North' encore (0.7) likely having some football overrun baked into it. 'Bob's Burgers' (0.4), 'The Simpsons' (0.4), a second 'Great North' (0.3), a second 'Bob's' (0.3), and 'Family Guy' (0.3) followed suit. Once again, 'Bless the Harts' was completely missing from the lineup. Those toon repeats were a tier above NBC's low-rated rerun carousel of 'Weakest Link' (0.2), 'The Wall' (0.2), 'Chicago Med' (0.2), and 'Dateline' (0.3). The CW's 'Batwoman' (0.2) held steady in week 2 and led into the season premiere of 'Charmed' (0.1). The latter was tenth below its fall 2019 premiere. 

Finals Update: 'NFL: Bills v. Chiefs' (+1.9), 'Card Sharks' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'FBI' (-0.1) adjusted down.
