    [...]equaled NBC’s best rating in the slot since the Stanley Cup Finals on June 24 in a slot where NBC has been running strong original programming all summer long.

    -> Cen’t be that strong if 1.7 is the number to beat. And since it’s the best rating in that slot since the end of June, this just tells me that they failed miserably.
