NBCOlympics.com on MSN Already Surpasses Athens Games in Page Views, Streams and Users

BEIJING -Aug. 13, 2008 - Through four nights, the Beijing Olympics has averaged 30.4 million viewers, five million more than the first four days of the Athens Olympics in 2004. The 17.1 rating and 30 share is an increase of 16 percent from Athens. Additionally, NBCOlympics.com has already surpassed the total number of page views, unique users and video streams from the entire Athens Games in 2004.

� NBC's Beijing Olympic four-day average viewership is 30.4 million, more than 5 million more than Athens in 2004 (24.7 million). The national rating average of 17.1/30 is the best primetime rating through the first Monday for a non-U.S. Summer Olympics since Barcelona in 1992 (17.4/33) and is a 16 percent jump from Athens in 2004 (14.7/26).

� Through four days NBCU has attracted 157 million total viewers, 15 million more than the first four days for Athens (142 million),

� Monday night's 29.7 million average viewers bested Athens by 2.5 million viewers (27.1) and earned a 17.4 rating/28 share, a five percent jump from Athens in 2004 (16.6/27).

� NBC's primetime coverage, which included Michael Phelps collecting his third Beijing gold medal and ninth career Olympic gold medal and saw a total of six medals at the Water Cube yesterday including three gold, peaked with a 20.1/31 and 34.4 million average viewers in the 10:00 p.m. half hour.

MORE PHELPS TONIGHT IN PRIMETIME ON NBC:

Tonight in primetime, Michael Phelps could become the greatest Olympian of all-time, swimming in two gold medal finals - the 200m butterfly and 4x200m freestyle relay. With three gold medals already in Beijing and nine career golds, this could be the night when Phelps breaks the all-time record for career gold medals (nine), which he tied yesterday and is currently shared by five athletes, including USA's Carl Lewis and Mark Spitz.
