NFL ON FOX WEEK 12 HIGHLIGHTS:

• Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day NFL action on FOX between the Saints and Cowboys delivered a 14.7/36, the network’s best Thanksgiving Day overnight in 12 years. Thursday’s metered market rating is up +21% over FOX's game last year (Green Bay/Detroit 12.1/29) and up +17% over last year's Cowboys game on CBS (12.6/29, Oakland/Dallas).
