Giants Cowboys Football

via press release:

Regarding this morning’s Nielsens, remember that the fast-affiliate 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 ratings category, including adult-female demos, in the fast-affiliate ratings.

In metered-market results, which are time zone-adjusted, the 16.6/27 in metered-market households from 8:30 p.m.-11:45 a.m. ET for NBC Sports’ coverage of last night’s New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game is the #1 rating of the night, excluding Fox’s NFL overrun.

NBC’s primetime average 12.6/21 from 7-11 p.m. ET is the best Sunday average for ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox since February 24 (ABC’s Academy Awards coverage).

Additional points provided by NBC Sports:

The 16.6/27 in metered-market households from 8:30 p.m.-11:45 a.m. ET for NBC Sports’ coverage of last night’s New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game is the fifth-best NBC Sunday night in-season NFL overnight rating ever

It’s also the second-best NBC overnight ever among seven Giants-Cowboys “SNF” matchups to date (behind only the 17.1/27 on January 1, 2012).
