  2. FROM NBC

    Sunday Primetime Ratings:

    A reminder that the fast-affiliate ratings that came in at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT 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 categories – adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus 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 New York Giants at the Denver Broncos (with a halftime deficit of 14 points) averaged a 10.9 rating, 18 share from 8:30-11:15 p.m. ET, to rank once again as Sunday’s top primetime show.

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

    The 10.9/18 overnight rating for the Giants-Broncos game tops by +21% the 9.0/15 for the year-ago Colts-Texans overtime game during Week 6 of the 2016 NFL season.

    The metered-market household rating peaked at an 11.7/19 from 9:30-10 p.m. ET during the second quarter.

    Top markets for last night’s Giants-Broncos game on NBC were: Denver 38.2/58; Albuquerque 16.3/26; Philadelphia 15.4/25; New Orleans 15.0/21; Richmond 14.9/23; Norfolk 14.8/22; New York 14.3/23; San Diego 12.9/23; Buffalo 12.7/20; Washington 12.6/23.

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

  3. Football is still far from the overwhelming numbers it used to have recently…

    As for the rest… Disasters galore and huge losses of lead-in… 🙁
