NBC Sunday Night Football Lands Top-Rated Slot Again
The Super Bowl champion New York Giants 34-28 overtime victory over the
Carolina Panthers on “NBC Sunday Night Football” is the top rated
primetime program of the week and led NBC to a Sunday night win for the
second consecutive week according to data provided by Nielsen Media
Last night’s SNF game registered a metered market rating of 12.9 with a
21 share, a gain of 30 percent over the comparable game last season
(Washington-Minnesota, 9.9/17 on 12-23-07). The game peaked in the 11
pm ET half-hour at a 15.1/26.
The SNF game powered NBC to its second consecutive Sunday night win and
based on these metered-market results and other preliminary data, “NBC
Sunday Night Football” is likely to rank No. 1 among primetime programs
for the week of December 15-21 among households, average viewers and
other key ratings categories also for the second straight week.
Official results for the week are due from Nielsen Tuesday morning.
