15.9 OVERNIGHT FOR GIANTS-EAGLES 4th BEST IN "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" HISTORY; BEATS LAST YEAR'S WEEK 11 GAME BY 31%

SNF No. 1 Show on Sunday Night For 11th Straight Week

Philadelphia (38.1) Led All Metered Markets; New York Registers 20.1 (7th Among Metered Markets)

SNF Powered NBC to a Sunday Night Win

Best November Primetime NFL Game in 12 Years

NEW YORK - November 22, 2010 - Last night's "Sunday Night Football" thriller was the fourth-highest rated game in SNF history, was up 31 percent over last year's Week 11 game, was the top-rated show on Sunday night for 11th straight week, led NBC to another Sunday night win and was the best November primetime NFL rating in 12 years, according to overnight data released today by the Nielsen Company. The game, in which the Eagles beat the Giants, 27-17, in a battle for first place in the NFC East, registered a 15.9 overnight rating and a 24 share.

The 15.9/24 overnight rating is an increase of 31 percent over last year's Week 11 game (Eagles-Bears, 12.1/19) and up 18 percent from Week 11 in 2008, which featured the Cowboys-Redskins (13.5/20).

The rating peaked at a 16.9/31 from 11:30-11:45 p.m. ET in the fourth quarter with the outcome of the game hanging in the balance.

The 15.9/24 overnight was the best for a November primetime game since Packers-Steelers on 11/9/98 on ABC (16.0/24).

Four NBC games this season, including this year's Thursday night opener, rank among the top five NBC primetime games ever.
