NBC'S VIKINGS-STEELERS NFL/HALL OF FAME GAME IS MOST-WATCHED NFL PRESEASON GAME IN 5 YEARS

Game Averages 11 Million Viewers - Up 29% From Last Year & Ranks as Most-Watched Sporting Event since Women's World Cup Final

STAMFORD, Conn. - August 11, 2015 - NBC's telecast of the Minnesota Vikings' 14-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday night's NFL/Hall of Fame Game averaged 11.0 million viewers, ranking as the most-watched preseason NFL game on any network in five years, since NBC's telecast of the 2010 NFL/Hall of Fame Game (11.4 million for Bengals-Cowboys), according to official national ratings released today by The Nielsen Company.

Vikings-Steelers topped last year's NFL/Hall of Fame Game telecast by 29% (8.5 million viewers for Giants-Bills) and ranks as the most-watched sporting event since the Women's World Cup Final on July 5, which featured the victorious U.S. team (Fox, 22.3 million viewers).

The telecast (8:11-11 p.m. ET), which earned a 6.6/12 U.S. household rating, led NBC to Sunday primetime victories in household rating, viewership and the Adult 18-49 demographic.

NBC's second preseason game will air on Sunday, Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. ET and features wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals visiting quarterback Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders.

NBC TO BROADCAST 19 NFL GAMES IN 2015: As part of the agreement NBC signed with the NFL in December 2011, NBC, for the fourth straight season, will broadcast 19 regular-season games, including 17 regular-season Sunday Night Football games, NFL Kickoff 2015, and the annual Thanksgiving night game. NBC's original Sunday Night Football agreement, which began in 2006, included 17 regular-season games. It was increased to 18 games in 2010.

SNF IS NO. 1 PRIMETIME PROGRAM ON TELEVISION: For four consecutive full television seasons, NBC's Sunday Night Football has finished as the No. 1 show in primetime in household rating, viewership and the coveted Adult 18-49 demographic, based on live plus same day data from The Nielsen Company (September-May). This marks the only four times on record that a sports series has been the highest-rated and most-watched show of the primetime TV season. For the 2014-2015 primetime television season, Sunday Night Football ranked as the highest-rated (12.5 HH rating), most-watched show (21.3 million, viewers 2+), and the No. 1 program in the key Adults 18-49 demographic (7.7 rating).
