GIANTS-COWBOYS EARNS 16.1 OVERNIGHT RATING ON "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL"

16.1 is Second-Highest Sunday Night Football Overnight This Season and Fifth-Highest Ever on SNF

SNF Is No. 1 Show of Night and Leads NBC to Sunday Night Win

Dallas Leads Metered Markets With 41.6/58; New York is Eighth With 21.5/32

NEW YORK - December 12, 2011 - Sunday Night Football was the No. 1 broadcast on Sunday night and led NBC to another Sunday night win, according to overnight data released today by The Nielsen Company.

Last night's game on NBC, in which the Giants rallied from 12 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Cowboys, 37-34, registered a 16.1 overnight rating and a 25 share, the second-highest SNF overnight this season (Cowboys-Jets, 16.9/27 in Week 1) and the fifth-highest in the six-year history of Sunday Night Football. The overnight rating for last night's game is off just two percent from last year's Week 14 game (Eagles-Cowboys, 16.5/25), which, at the time, was the most-watched Sunday Night Football game ever.

NBC NO. 1 ON SUNDAY NIGHT: Last night's Sunday Night Football broadcast won the night while facing original network programs. NBC led the night among metered markets in primetime (7-11 p.m. ET) with a 12.2/19, topping the 9.1/14 for second-place CBS, which was boosted by an NFL overrun. NBC also beat Fox (4.2/6) by 190 percent and ABC (3.8/6) by 221 percent.

41 FOR 42: SNF was the No. 1 show of the night in metered-market households, excluding NFL overruns and post-game shows. When the viewership is available tomorrow from Nielsen, Sunday Night Football is expected to be the most-watched primetime show on Sunday night. This will mark the 41st time in 42 primetime NFL games - dating back to Week 7 in 2009 - that NBC has defeated its competition (38 Sundays, two Thursdays and one Tuesday).

**Viewership numbers will be available when national ratings are released tomorrow**
