The 6.5 matches the top "Globes" rating since 2004 and the 20.9 million is its biggest average audience since that same year.

According to "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research for the week of Jan. 6-12, NBC averaged a 2.0 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 7.2 million viewers overall.
