TV Ratings: NBC scores with Sunday night football
America, it turns out, is totally ready for some football. Sunday evening's watching was totally dominated by NBC's "Football Night in America" match-up between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Jets.
NBC averaged 19 million viewers and an 11.4 rating, 18 share in primetime households, more than double the totals logged by every other network. CBS (9.3 million, 5.9/9) was a distant second with a night of 9/11 memorial programming. FOX (7.3, 4.3/7) and ABC (4.8 million, 3.1/5) trailed with re-runs and more 9/11-related programming, respectively.
NBC and football, not surprisingly, dominated the 18-49 demographic with a 7.8 rating.
