STAMFORD, Conn. - Jan. 10, 2023 - With Sunday night's down-to-the-wire Lions-Packers matchup, NBC Sports concluded its 17th season of Sunday Night Football, topping all primetime television series in the fall and once again pacing to finish as primetime's #1 TV show in all key metrics for an unprecedented 12th consecutive year. NBC's SNF, in the most competitive time slot in media, extended its record for the most consecutive years atop the charts (since 1950) and now doubles the show with the second-longest run atop primetime:

Sunday Night Football, which featured a record 13 one-score games, averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of 19.9 million viewers for the 2022 season - the show's best viewership since 2019 and up 3% from last season (19.3 million), according to official national live plus same day data released by Nielsen, and digital data from Adobe Analytics. Over the course of the season, viewers watched nearly 72 billion minutes of SNF.

"With our most watched Kickoff Weekend in six years, the blockbuster Mahomes-Brady matchup, our largest two-game Thanksgiving Weekend audience in seven years and Sunday's thrilling finale at iconic Lambeau Field, the 2022 Sunday Night Football season was a success from beginning to end," said Pete Bevacqua, Chairman, NBC Sports. "In a transition year on the air and in the truck, we thank our unparalleled production, technical and announce teams. Coupled with the continued growth of Peacock, we delivered a best-in-class presentation and continued our record-setting 12-year run ranking #1 in primetime."

Mike Tirico succeeded Al Michaels in the SNF booth this season, joining Cris Collinsworth. Melissa Stark followed Michele Tafoya as sideline reporter. Rob Hyland became coordinating producer, succeeding Fred Gaudelli, and joining director Drew Esocoff in the truck.
