"NBC SNF" up 16% Over Last Year's Week 15 "MNF" Game

"SNF" Beats NBC Sunday Night Performance from '05 by 108%

NEW YORK � December 18, 2006 � The San Diego Chargers 20-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on "NBC Sunday Night Football" earned a 10.4 overnight rating and 16 share, up 16% over the Week 15 Monday Night Football game on ABC last year between the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens, which drew a 9.0/15.

The 10.4/16 is 108% higher than NBC's overnight average on this same night last year (5.0/8 from 8:30-11pm).

The Chargers-Chiefs game was handpicked by the NFL for NBC as part of the league's new flexible scheduling policy to ensure matchups with playoff implications; San Diego is fighting for the top seed in the AFC and K.C. is battling for a wild card berth. Heading into last year's Week 15 Monday night game, the Packers had a 3-10 record and the Ravens a 4-9 mark.

Final national ratings will be available tomorrow.
