Those who weren’t watching Fox’s coverage of the Saints’ NFC Championship victory over the Vikings Sunday night chose ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition over NBC’s figure skating, and CBS’ 60 Minutes over NBC’s Dateline. Everything suffered, however, in comparison with football, as a whopping 52 million viewers tuned in to find out who’d be advancing to the Super Bowl, according to early Nielsen estimates. (Though that number isn’t yet official because of the live nature of the event.)

Here, a look at the rest of the Sunday lineup:
