Saturday Primetime Results:
Keep in mind that the fast-affiliate Nielsens that came in at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to revision for live sports telecasts.
· In metered-market results, which are time zone-adjusted, NBC Sports' coverage of Notre Dame-Arizona State college football from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Tex., earned NBC's highest Saturday primetime average in three months in metered-market households. NBC's 2.4/4 average from 8-11 p.m. ET in that category is the network's highest for a Saturday since coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals earned a 3.9/8 on June 22.
· In time zone-adjusted metered-market households, the Notre Dame-Arizona State game is up 4% versus last year's comparable "Shamrock Series" off-site Notre Dame home game (2.5 rating in metered-market households from 7:30-11:30 p.m. vs. last year's 2.4 for Miami-Notre Dame) and is the top-rated "Shamrock Series" game since the event commenced in 2009.
