pro bowl 2012 ratings TV ratings: Pro Bowl, CBS top Sunday's ratings, 'Once Upon a Time' risesFast national ratings for Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012

The NFL’s Pro Bowl gave NBC a ratings win among adults 18-49 Sunday night, but the all-star game’s audience was nowhere near as big as the NFC championship game last week, so there was room for growth elsewhere as well.

“Once Upon a Time” drew its best numbers of 2012 for ABC, and “Undercover Boss” also had its best outing of the season so far. “The Good Wife” was also up for CBS.

CBS led the night in total viewers, averaging 11.4 million and a 7.2 rating/11 share in households. NBC (10.7 million, 6.4/10) finished a close second. ABC came in third with just under 8 million viewers and a 4.7/7, while FOX (4.1 million, 2.4/4) trailed.

NBC easily won the 18-49 demographic with a 3.7 rating. The other three networks were closely bunched, with CBS scoring a 2.2, ABC a 2.1 and FOX a 2.0.
