    Sunday Primetime Ratings:

    A reminder that Nielsen’s fast-affiliate ratings are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to change for live sports coverage.

    Despite that, in these preliminary results, NBC ranks #1 for the night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in all key measures – adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, as well as total viewers — in the fast-affiliate ratings.

    In metered-market household results, which are time zone-adjusted, NBC Sports coverage of the “Sunday Night Football” game featuring the Dallas Cowboys at the Oakland Raiders generated a 12.3 rating, 21 share from 8:30-11:45 p.m. ET, leading NBC to the primetime victory.

    The metered-market household rating peaked at a 13.4/27 for the game’s conclusion from 11:30-11:45 p.m. ET.

    Live streaming is not included in these NFL overnights – full Total Audience Delivery (TAD) will be issued later and throughout the season.

    Last night’s 12.3/21 overnight for the Dallas-Oakland matchup is the best-ever among the five Raiders games televised to date on NBC “Sunday Night Football.”

    Top markets for last night’s Cowboys-Raiders game on NBC were: Dallas 31.2/50; San Antonio 24.6/39; Albuquerque 22.2/35; Austin 21.1/40; Richmond 17.9/27; New Orleans 17.5/24; Sacramento 17.3/30; Kansas City 16.7/26; Norfolk 16.2/25; and Las Vegas 15.6/25.

    NOTE: All ratings are “live plus same day” from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

    • They have to be really disappointed in it. I stated on the earlier ratings that Marc posted – I could not get through it. I made it about 20 minutes, I think.
