NBC Sunday night Football, Vikings vs Cardinals #1


From 8:30-11:15 p.m., NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, featuring the Minnesota Vikings at the Arizona Cardinals, averaged a 13.7/21 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 ABC’s DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and BROTHERS & SISTERS, CBS’s 60 MINUTES and AMAZING RACE and encore comedies on Fox.  Head-to-head from 9-10 p.m., the Vikings-Cardinals game out-rated ABC’s DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES in the metered markets by a margin of 71% (14.5 vs. 8.5).

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