IN YEAR 20, NFL ON FOX POSTS MOST-WATCHED SEASON EVER

Ties 1995 as Highest-Rated NFL on FOX Season; America's Game of the Week Remains TV's No. 1 Show

Results Cap Banner Year of Across-the-Board Growth

New York - The 20th NFL on FOX regular season concluded Sunday (12/29) and it is officially the most-watched since FOX began broadcasting NFL games in 1994, with an average audience of 21.2 million viewers, eclipsing 2010 as the most-watched NFL on FOX season ever (20.1 million) by 5% and ties 1995 as the highest-rated NFL on FOX season ever (12.5), according to Nielsen Media Research. Reflecting a recent trend, FOX's four most-watched NFL seasons have come in the last four years (2013 - 21.2 million; 2010 - 20.111 million; 2011 - 20.096 million; and 2012 - 19.7 million).

NFL on FOX 2013 (12.5/25, 21.2 million viewers) marks a +6% household ratings and an 8% audience increase over last year (11.8/24, 19.7 million). Putting the remarkable recent growth of the NFL on FOX in perspective, this year's average is +19% over what it delivered five years ago (2008 - 10.5/22- 17.0 million viewers) and +21% better than what it delivered 10 years ago (2003 - 10.3/23 - 15.6 million viewers).

The NFL on FOX's AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK national games finished off the season averaging a sensational 15.9/29, with 27.2 million viewers, and continues to rank as the most-watched show on television in households and all key male and adult demographics. This season for AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK is also record-setting as it is now FOX's highest-rated and most-watched on record, eclipsing the previous national game mark set in 2009 (15.5/29, 26.2 million viewers). AMERICA'S GAME OF THE WEEK finished +7% in rating and +10% in audience over last year (14.8/26, 24.8 million viewers).

The NFL on FOX also posted noteworthy increases among female viewers this season, including women 18-34 (+8%, 4.3 vs. 4.0), women 18-49 (+7%, 4.8 vs. 4.5) and women 25-54 (+10%, 5.7 vs. 5.2). FOX's 2013 season average among women 18-49 ties as the highest-rated ever, while women 25-54 ranks as the network's best ever. The strong female growth enabled FOX to post gains in every important adult demographic: adults 18-34, +2%; adults 18-49, +1% and adults 25-54, +3%.

FOX NFL SUNDAY, America's most-watched pregame show since its 1994 debut, delivered a 3.4/8, with season-high 5.5 million viewers for its final installment of the 2013 campaign on Sunday, and on the year averaged 3.2/8 with 4.8 million viewers, up +3% in rating and +4% in audience over last year (3.1/8, 4.6 million viewers).
