BEIJING -Aug. 17, 2008 -The Networks of NBC Universal have reached 185 million total viewers, on pace to be the most watched Olympics ever, even surpassing the Atlanta Games. Through eight days the total viewership for the Beijing Games has already surpassed the total viewership for the entire Torino, Nagano and Albertville Games. The 30.0 million average viewers in primetime and the 17.4 rating/30 share, each represent significant gains compared to Athens in 2004 and Thursday's TAMi reached 101.4 Million.

� Through eight days NBCU has attracted 185 million total viewers, 14 million more than the first eight days for Athens (171 million) and five million more than the Atlanta Games (180 million) which was the most viewed television event in history.

� NBC's Beijing Olympic eight-day average primetime viewership is 30.0 million, 13 percent ahead of Athens in 2004 (26.6 million). The national rating average of 17.4/30 is the best primetime rating through the first Friday for a Summer Olympics outside the U.S. since Barcelona in 1992 (18.7/36) and is a nine percent jump from Athens in 2004 (16.0/28).

� Friday night garnered 66 million total viewers in primetime and 25.6 million average viewers, nearly two million more than the comparable night in Athens (23.7). The night earned a 15.2 rating/28 share, which is a six percent increase (14.4/27).
