Note that the fast-affiliate Nielsens that came in at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT are not time zone-adjusted and typically understate live NFL telecasts. Despite that, NBC is currently #1 for the night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in every key ratings measure in the fast-affiliate ratings.
· In metered-market results, which are time zone-adjusted, NBC Sports' coverage of last night's Dallas Cowboys-New Orleans Saints game averaged a 13.0 rating, 21 share in metered-market households from 8:30- 11:30 p.m. ET, the #1 primetime rating of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
· Top local markets were: New Orleans 56.2 rating, 73 share; Dallas 30.3/47; San Antonio 22.6/34; Austin 21.5/35; Albuquerque 20.1/30; Richmond 20.1/29.
