Sunday Night Football registered its biggest audience of the season as the Indianapolis-New England contest scored an average 14.9 rating and a 22 share Sunday night. Nevertheless, it was not enough to beat ABC's Desperate Housewives, which, thanks to a supermarket-shootout storyline, drew the best ratings of the night -- and probably the week -- with a 15.0/21, according to the overnights. Earlier in the evening an overrun of athe afternoon NFL contest gave CBS the lead at 7:00 p.m. with a 14.0/22 in the first half hour, followed by a 12.2/18 for the beginning of 60 Minutes in the second half hour.
