STAMFORD, Conn. - October 30, 2013 - Buoyed by Sunday Night Football, the opening of the NHL season, Premier League and MLS matches, Formula One and IndyCar racing, and golf's Presidents Cup, NBC Sports Group posted large viewership increases in October.

"October was an exciting month as many of the properties we have acquired and shows we have created turned in excellent performances," said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBC Sports Group. "We are pleased to share this success with our advertisers, affiliates, and league and distribution partners."
