Sunday Final Nationals: NBC Dominates with ‘Sunday Night Football’

The New England Patriots dominated the Denver Broncos on “Sunday Night Football” and so did the game’s broadcaster NBC over its Sunday night competition, nearly doubling its viewer average over runner-up CBS and nearly doubling its adults 18-49 output over runner-up Fox.

Top markets for last night’s Patriots-Broncos game on NBC were: Boston 34.7/53; Denver 33.8/55; Providence 33.8/51; New Orleans 17.7/25; Hartford 14.1/22; Albuquerque 14.1/22; Richmond 13.2/21; Seattle 12.7/21; Portland 12.6/22; and San Diego 12.6/22.
