Video Streams on NBCOlympics.com on MSN More Than Doubles Total Streams From Athens and Torino Combined

BEIJING -Aug. 16, 2008 -The Networks of NBC Universal have reached 180 million total viewers, 30.6 million average viewers in primetime and a rating of 17.7 rating/30 share, each posting significant gains compared to Athens in 2004. Additionally NBC Universal's primetime delivery has dominated the competition for seven straight nights and Wednesday's TAMi reached 100.9 Million.

� Through seven days NBCU has attracted 180 million total viewers, 15 million more than the first seven days for Athens (165 million).

� NBC's primetime Olympics telecasts have towered over all competition, more than doubling the combined results of ABC, CBS and Fox in average viewers on each of the seven nights of Olympic coverage to date. For the seven nights of the Games to date, NBC's average of 30.6 million viewers beat the average combined totals of the other three networks by 171 percent: CBS (5.1 million), ABC (3.2 million) and Fox (3.0 million).

� Through Thursday night, NBC's primetime Olympics average viewership was outdelivering the viewership of the next 14 top-scoring ad-supported English-language broadcast and cable networks combined.

� NBC's Beijing Olympic seven-day average primetime viewership is 30.6 million, more than 13 percent ahead of Athens in 2004 (27.0 million). The national rating average of 17.7/30 is the best primetime rating through the first Thursday for a Summer Olympics outside the U.S. since Barcelona in 1992 (19.0/35) and is a nine percent jump from Athens in 2004 (16.2/28).
