Sunday NFL games on Fox set ratings records

NEW YORK — The Vikings-Steelers and Falcons-Cowboys games
combined to help draw record television ratings last Sunday.

The doubleheader on Fox averaged a 14.1 rating and 29 share and
23.5 million viewers, a record audience for the network. The
rating was the third highest since Fox started airing the NFL in
1994.

The early, regional game – in which most markets saw the Super
Bowl champ Steelers hand Brett Favre and the Vikings their first
loss – set ratings and audience records for the slot with a
11.4/25 and 18.5 million viewers.

The late game, led by Atlanta-Dallas, earned a 16.8/32 with 28.4
million viewers. It was Fox’s most-watched Sunday NFL game in 13
years.

Ratings represent the percentage of all households with
televisions tuned into a program, and shares represent the
percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.
