"Sunday Night Football" Marks Its Best Week-Four Telecast Ever and the NFL's Best Week-Four Primetime Game in 16 Years
NBC spins the numbers for Sunday, September 30.

[via press release from NBC]

Sunday Results:

· Currently available fast-affiliate ratings are not time zone-adjusted and typically understate live NFL telecasts. Despite that, NBC is currently #1 for the night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in all key ratings categories: adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

· In time zone-adjusted metered-market results, the New York Giants-Philadelphia Eagles game was a dominant #1 with a 15.6 rating, 25 share in metered-market households from 8:30-11:45 p.m. ET, up 23 percent from the year-ago week-four game (12.7 for Jets-Ravens). In metered-market households, it was the best week-four "SNF" telecast ever and the NFL's best week-four primetime game in 16 years (since 1996). It's also the best primetime NFL game facing premiere-week competition on the broadcast nets since 1996.

· NBC dominated the night in metered-market households, averaging an 11.5/18 from 7-11 p.m., to win over Fox (8.0/12) by 44 percent, CBS (7.6/12) by 51 percent and ABC (5.8/9) by 98 percent.

· Top local markets were: Philadelphia 31.8/48, Richmond 22.1/33, Norfolk 22.0/33, Las Vegas 21.2/33, New York 20.7/31, Washington 18.0/30 and Baltimore 18.0/27.

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

DOMINANT NBC SPORTS SUNDAY

Sunday Night Football Draws 15.6/25 Overnight, Best Week 4 Primetime NFL Rating in 16 Years; Powers NBC to Sunday Night Win Ryder Cup Draws Best Final Round Overnight Rating in 13 Years

NEW YORK - October 1, 2012 - NBC Sports dominated the day in sports yesterday with the highest overnight rating for a Week 4 NFL primetime game in 16 years, leading NBC to another Sunday night win, and the best overnight for the final day of the Ryder Cup in 13 years.

SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL:

Last night's Sunday Night Football game on NBC, in which the Eagles defeated the Giants, 19-17, registered a 15.6 overnight rating and a 25 share (8:30-11:45 p.m. ET), 23% higher than last year's Week 4 SNF game (Jets-Ravens 12.7/20), and the best overnight rating for a Week 4 primetime game in 16 years (Dolphins-Colts 19.1/29, 9/23/96 on ABC). It also marks the best overnight rating for an NFL primetime game facing the start of the primetime television season in 16 years (Bills-Steelers, 15.7/24, 9/16/96 on ABC).

The Giants and Eagles also met in Week 4 of the 2007 season on Sunday Night Football. That game drew a 10.8 overnight rating and 17 share, down 44% from last night's game.

The game peaked at a 17.3/33 from 11:30-11:45 p.m. ET.
