If it’s Sunday Night it’s NBC and Football the winner


From 8:30-11:15 p.m., NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, featuring the Cincinnati Bengals at the New York Jets, averaged an 11.4/18 in metered-market households. 

Fast affiliate-based ratings currently available from Nielsen are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to significant revision for live events such as football.  While those numbers are likely to shift somewhat in official nationals, they currently show SNF winning its time period in adults 18-49, total viewers and numerous other categories and NBC ranking #1 for the night in 18-49, total viewers and other key categories.

NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL is the #1 program of the night in the metered markets (excludes overruns of NFL day games) on a night that included original competition from ABC’s DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and BROTHERS & SISTERS, CBS’s 60 MINUTES and Fox’s SIMPSONS and FAMILY GUY. 

NBC is #1 for the night in metered-market households.

NOTE: All national ratings are “live plus same day” from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.  Metered-market household ratings are live only.
