NEW YORK - Dec. 22, 2008 � The Super Bowl champion New York Giants 34-28 overtime victory over the Carolina Panthers on "NBC Sunday Night Football" is the top rated primetime program of the week and led NBC to a Sunday night win for the second consecutive week according to data provided by Nielsen Media Research.

The SNF game powered NBC to its second consecutive Sunday night win and based on these metered-market results and other preliminary data, "NBC Sunday Night Football" is likely to rank No. 1 among primetime programs for the week of December 15-21 among households, average viewers and other key ratings categories also for the second straight week.

Additionally, SNF was the No. 1 series in the November sweeps period among Adults 18-49 and other key advertising demographics and NBC has won the night with SNF in 12 of 15 weeks this season in Adults 18-49.
