BEIJING -Aug. 17, 2008 -The Networks of NBC Universal have reached 185 million total viewers, on pace to be the most watched Olympics ever, even surpassing the Atlanta Games. Through eight days the total viewership for the Beijing Games has already surpassed the total viewership for the entire Torino, Nagano and Albertville Games.

� NBC's Beijing Olympic eight-day average primetime viewership is 30.0 million, 13 percent ahead of Athens in 2004 (26.6 million). The national rating average of 17.4/30 is the best primetime rating through the first Friday for a Summer Olympics outside the U.S. since Barcelona in 1992 (18.7/36) and is a nine percent jump from Athens in 2004 (16.0/28).
