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).
