UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 3, 2010 - NBC's November 25 9 a.m.-noon ET coverage of the 84th annual "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" is the #1 entertainment telecast of the November 22-28 week in adults 18-49, with its 5.9 rating, 25 share topping all primetime non-sports telecasts on all the major networks.

According to "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research, the parade topped last week's #2 entertainment telecast, ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" finale Tuesday night, by 11 percent (with a 5.9 rating vs. a 5.3).

This is the second-highest average viewership for the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" in nine years (since 2001, 23.1 million), trailing only last year's 22.3 million over that span.

In metered-market results released by Nielsen last week, the parade hovered 12 percent above last year's average in the host New York market, with a 19.4 rating, 40 share in households versus last year's 17.3/35. That made it the top "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" household rating in New York since 2003.
