"SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" AGAIN TOPS ALL SUNDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING

Eagles Win Over Giants is Fourth Highest Rated SNF Game This Season Tops Oprah Winfrey Special on ABC by 67%

NEW YORK - Dec. 14, 2009 - Last night's "NBC Sunday Night Football" game was the No. 1 broadcast on Sunday night for the 12th time in 13 weeks with the Philadelphia Eagles 45-38 victory over the New York Giants in a crucial NFC East game. "SNF" was again the No. 1 show of the night in the metered markets (excludes overruns of NFL day games) on a night that faced original programming including ABC's Oprah Winfrey Christmas special, CBS's 60 Minutes and Fox's The Simpsons, Cleveland Show and Family Guy. Head-to-head from 10-11 p.m., "Sunday Night Football" out-rated 'Christmas at the White House: An Oprah Primetime Special' on ABC by 67 percent.

FOURTH HIGHEST OVERNIGHT OF THE SEASON: "Sunday Night Football" registered a 13.8 overnight rating and a 22 share (from 8:30-11:45 p.m. ET), fourth highest of the season. That rating is up 48 percent from last year's Week 14 game (Redskins-Ravens, 9.3/14).

The rating peaked during the second quarter (9:30-10 p.m. ET) at a 14.3/22 when the Eagles took a 30-17 lead. Below are the half-hour ratings (Times ET):
