Currently available fast-affiliate ratings 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
all key ratings categories: adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and
25-54, plus total viewers.
* In time zone-adjusted metered-market results, the Green Bay
Packers-Houston Texans game was a dominant #1 with a 12.6 rating, 20
share in metered-market households from 8:30-11:15 p.m. ET, up 13
percent from the year-ago week-four game (11.2 for Vikings-Bears).
* NBC was a convincing #1 for the night in metered-market
households, averaging a 9.8/15 from 7-11 p.m., to win over CBS
(7.6/12) by 29 percent, Fox (6.5/10) by 51 percent and ABC (4.9/8) by

CBS was delayed by 22 minutes in pockets of the east coast, so the numbers will be a little off..
Fox has got to be upset a little- looks like the Yankees are done (down 2-0, they aren’t hitting, and Jeter is out), so there goes a lot of the national interest and the #1 media market….It’s not a complete disaster as all four teams are in top 25 media markets (St Louis is 21, Detroit is 11, and San Francisco is 6), but the ratings for the World Series aren’t going to be as high as it would be if the Yankees made it..You could have some interest if St Louis gets there to try for the repeat, but I’m not that sure..
