The numbers indicate that Friday's full-day Opening Ceremony coverage will average nearly 14 million TV-only viewers (14.4 million TAD) - ranking with NBC's Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony in July and NBC's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as the most-watched entertainment shows on any network since last March.

"Led by extensive multiplatform coverage of the compelling Opening Ceremony, and by Nathan Chen's spectacular performance on Thursday night, we are off to a strong start that is in line with the expectations of our advertising partners," said NBC Sports Chairman Pete Bevacqua. "We look forward to continuing our momentum with the competition tonight and in the weeks ahead."

In addition, 190 million minutes tops the combined total of all prior Winter Games Opening Ceremony days (125 million minutes for 2010, 2014 and 2018 Olympics).

Across its primetime Opening Ceremony coverage, NBCU ran a 42% lower ad load then the other broadcast networks, which delivered on average 17% higher impressions per ad unit, according to iSpot.
