Monday Final Ratings: Winter Olympics Boosts NBC as the Most-Dominant Broadcast Network on an In-Season Monday Night in 20 Years

Monday night’s primetime coverage posted a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) average of 22.3 million viewers, according to live plus same day fast national data by Nielsen, and digital data from Adobe Analytics.

With an NBC-only average of 20.9 million viewers from 8-11 p.m. ET, NBC topped by 87 percent the combined primetime viewership of ABC, CBS and FOX (11.2 million viewers) — marking the most-dominant Monday night in the Sept.-May TV season by any broadcast network since the 1998 Academy Awards, which featured “Titanic” as Best Picture.

Monday night’s coverage was highlighted by 17-year old American Chloe Kim’s halfpipe gold medal, with viewership on NBC/NBCSN peaking at 26.9 million viewers from 9:15-9:30 p.m. ET as she made her final run.

The top ten markets for NBC/NBCSN in Monday prime time were:
1. Denver 25.7/43
2. Salt Lake City 23.0/39
3. Kansas City 21.1/32
4. Milwaukee 20.2/32
5. Minneapolis 19.6/35
6. Portland 18.6/33
T7. Seattle 17.9/32
T7. Sacramento 17.9/31
