“Sunday Night Football” again dominated the primetime airwaves for NBC. Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for NBC and Fox (and like 19 minutes of CBS) should be considered subject to significant adjustment.
NBC was first in ratings with a 4.8 rating/21 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 15.6 million, according to preliminary numbers. Those numbers come from the 90-minute pregame show “Football Night in American” and the game itself, which saw the Dallas Cowboys dominate Nfc East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.
