Weekend update! Not every TV program this weekend involved footballs or puppies: Three fun dramas had big episodes, including a Super Bowl vs. Crawleys face-off.
First, PBS’ Downton Abbey down-trended in the ratings from last week, but still managed 6.8 million viewers Sunday night. That ranked Downton second among broadcast shows at 9 p.m. vs. none other than the Super Bowl. This marked the third year in a row the show has been #2 in that slot against the big game.
Meanwhile PBS’ cult fav Sherlock was pretty much the same as last week for its season 3 finale, delivering 3 million viewers. Farewell for another two years? »
