Television viewers bailed out en masse from ABC's Pan Am Sunday night as the series' ratings dropped 27 percent from a week ago. Only 6.4 million viewers tuned in, making it the network's lowest-rated show of the night and putting it ahead of only the repeats that aired on Fox instead of the American League Championship Game, which was rained out. ABC also received bad news for its Sunday flagship show, Desperate Housewives , which tied a series low for a fresh episode. Football again ruled the night, with 20.9 million viewers tuned in to the overrun of the New York Jets vs New England Patriots game on CBS and 19.5 million to the Green Bay Packers vs. the Atlanta Falcons telecast in Sunday Night Football on NBC.
