NFL Divisional Playoff games led overnight ratings from the weekend, but Olympic trials also performed well. NBC earned a 3.0 overnight for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Saturday in primetime, which featured the ladies' free-skate up against Patriots-Chargers. That figure topped any college basketball telecast over the weekend and is up 20% from the same telecast last year, which had competition from a UFC telecast on Fox, but no NFL competition. The men's free skate on NBC yesterday afternoon earned a 1.8 overnight up against NFL action, up 20% from the window last year, which had no NFL competition.
