UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 3, 2010 - NBC's November 25 9 a.m.-noon ET coverage of the 84th annual "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" is the #1 entertainment telecast of the November 22-28 week in adults 18-49, with its 5.9 rating, 25 share topping all primetime non-sports telecasts on all the major networks.

According to "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research, the parade topped last week's #2 entertainment telecast, ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" finale Tuesday night, by 11 percent (with a 5.9 rating vs. a 5.3).

This is the second-highest average viewership for the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" in nine years (since 2001, 23.1 million), trailing only last year's 22.3 million over that span.

NBC Research estimates that 43.7 million viewers watched all or some of NBC's "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" coverage, an increase versus last year's total audience of 43.3 million.

In metered-market results released by Nielsen last week, the parade hovered 12 percent above last year's average in the host New York market, with a 19.4 rating, 40 share in households versus last year's 17.3/35. That made it the top "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" household rating in New York since 2003. Other top markets for the parade Thursday morning were: West Palm Beach, 23.2/42; Providence-New Bedford, 22.3/43; Buffalo, 19.7/38; Knoxville, 18.9/33; Cleveland, 18.8/40; Richmond, 18.6/34; Fort Myers-Naples, 18.4/35; Pittsburgh, 18.0/36; St. Louis, 17.9/36; and Jacksonville, 17.9/34.

From noon-2 p.m. ET that day, NBC's coverage of "The National Dog Show Presented by Purina" averaged a 2.2/9 in adults 18-49 and 8.2 million viewers overall. NBC Research estimates 18.3 million viewers watched all or some of the telecast.

"The National Dog Show Presented by Purina" matched its year-ago rating in adults 18-49 and was up 7 percent versus 2009 in total viewers (8.2 million vs. 7.7 million).
