NYC’s Weekly Top Ten in TV: Giants Beat Cowboys, Emmys, Leno

J-E-T-S. Jets. Jets.

Jets?

Despite all the joyful delirium surrounding the arrival of Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan in New York and despite a stirring come-from-behind home victory over the detestable New England Patriots, the Jets once again failed to crack the weekly top ten.

New York City, it would seem, still belongs to the Giants.

And sure enough, NBC’s Football Night In America, featuring the Giants’ own stirring come-from-behind victory over the detestable Dallas Cowboys, put up huge numbers in New York, crushing not only the Emmys last week but also Jay Leno’s much-hyped debut in primetime.
