Nbc's Sunday Night Football Draws Best Ratings Ever

An average of 25.8 million viewers watched the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys -- the highest ratings ever for the NBC primetime feature. That figure may rise further when final totals are announced later today (Monday). The telecast drew more viewers than all of the competing shows combined in each hour of prime time between 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. At 7:00, the first hour of primetime on Sundays, football also dominated, with an overrun on Fox drawing 22.2 million viewers. Aware that they would be badly beaten, the other networks tossed in the towel and aired reruns, with the exception of ABC, which aired the movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It averaged just 3 million viewers.
