NBC'S "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" SCORES BEST 7-WEEK START FOR NFL PRIMETIME PACKAGE IN 17 YEARS

Broncos-Colts Most-Watched October NFL Primetime Game In More Than 2 Decades with 26.9 Million Viewers

Game Delivers Best NBC Sports Live Extra Traffic For non-Super Bowl NFL game

STAMFORD, Conn. - October 22, 2013 - NBC's Sunday Night Football - primetime television's #1 show - is averaging 22.7 million viewers, marking the best seven-week start for an NFL primetime package in 17 years (24.8 million in 1996 for Monday Night Football) and up 5% from last year (21.6 million average).

In addition, SNF tops primetime TV in season-to-date live plus same day household rating (13.4 - best in 15 years for NFL primetime package after seven weeks) and Adults 18-49 rating (8.8 - best in 16 years).

Sunday's Colts-Broncos game featuring Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis averaged 26.9 million viewers (15.9 HH rating), ranking as the most-watched October NFL primetime telecast in 21 years (33.0 million viewers for Cowboys-Eagles on ABC, 10/5/92) and the most-watched October primetime telecast of any kind since 2005.

Since Sept. 1, NBC's NFL telecasts rank as television's seven most-watched primetime shows and account for seven of the eight primetime programs to average 20 million viewers (other: NCIS season premiere).
