"SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" GOES SIX FOR SIX

Falcons Win Over Bears Top Rated Show of the Night

SNF More Than Triples Rating for NLCS Game 3

NEW YORK - October 19, 2009 - Last night's "NBC Sunday Night Football" was the No. 1 broadcast on Sunday night for the sixth consecutive week (excluding NFL overruns) with the Falcons 24-17 win over the Bears. "SNF" topped the night again more than tripling the rating of the NLCS Game 3 between the Dodgers and Phillies, as well as facing original network programming including ABC's Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters, CBS's 60 Minutes and Amazing Race and Fox's Simpsons, Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.

"Sunday Night Football" registered a 12.0 overnight rating and a 19 share (from 8:30-11:30 p.m. ET) a gain of 28 percent over last year's Week 6 contest (Patriots-Chargers, 9.4/15). The 12.0 rating for last night's game was the best Week 6 overnight for a SNF game (all facing LCS baseball playoffs) since the premier primetime NFL package shifted to NBC in 2006.

WEEK 6 "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" OVERNIGHT RATINGS:
2009 12.0/19, Bears-Falcons
2008 9.4/15, Patriots-Chargers
2007 8.4/13, Saints-Seahawks
2006 8.1/12, Raiders-Broncos

The overnight rating for last night's game more than tripled the Dodgers-Phillies NLCS Game 3 playoff game on TBS (12.0 vs. 3.7). In the Los Angeles market, "Sunday Night Football" beat the NLCS game featuring the hometown Dodgers by 15 percent (8.4 vs. 7.3).

Head-to-head from 9-10 p.m., the Bears-Falcons game out-rated ABC's Desperate Housewives in the metered markets by a margin of 55% (12.1 vs. 7.8).

TOP 10 METERED MARKETS FOR SNF WEEK 6:
1. Chicago, 33.9/50
2. Atlanta, 26.9/40
3. Denver, 19.2/29
4. Milwaukee, 17.7/27
5. New Orleans, 17.2/24
