NFL telecasts were the top 4 and 5 of the top 6 most-watched shows on television last week with the FOX national telecast (mostly Eagles-Seahawks) topping the charts with 25.9 million average viewers. The Patriots-Chargers matchup on NBC’s Sunday Night Football held the second spot for the week, averaging 21.2 million viewers, followed by the CBS single window (mostly Steelers-Bengals) which drew an average of 17.6 million viewers. The FOX regional telecast (mostly Colts-Browns) averaged 13.7 million viewers to round out the top four.

 

This marks the 14th time in 14 weeks that an NFL game has topped the weekly viewership charts, and the 13th time in 14 weeks that at least two NFL games have topped the weekly viewership charts.

 

NFL game windows account for the top 16 and 37 of the top 40 most-watched programs on television since the NFL season kicked off on Sept. 4.
