Regarding this morning's Nielsens, remember that the fast-national ratings 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 measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, as well as total viewers -- in the fast-national ratings.
· In metered-market results, which accurately reflect time-zone adjustments, last night's New York Giants-Philadelphia Eagles "Sunday Night Football" telecast averaged an 11.6 rating, 18 share from 8:30-11:15 p.m. ET in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research. Despite the game's 27-0 outcome, making it the most lopsided "SNF" shutout since 2009 (Jets 37, Bengals 0), NBC won the night in metered-market primetime averages.
· Top local ratings for the Giants-Eagles game on NBC were: Philadelphia, 33.1/48; New Orleans, 17.1/25; Las Vegas, 16.8/26; Baltimore, 15.4/23; Norfolk, 14.8/22; Richmond, 14.7/22; New York, 14.6/22; Dallas, 13.7/20; San Diego, 13.5/23; West Palm Beach, 13.4/21
NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.
