Ratings: Sunday Night Football Does Giant Numbers, Miss America Dips

Sunday Night Football Ratings

NBC Sunday Night Football’s coverage of the Giants’ loss to the Cowboys drew 24.5 million total viewers and a 9.2 demo rating, up 15 percent from last year’s Colts-Broncos match-up and marking the top-rated SNF Sunday opener since 2012.

The overnight ratings also best the Giants/Cowboys’ previous two SNF season kickoffs, in 2013 and 2007.

Up against the ol’ pigskin, ABC’s Miss America telecast (7 mil/1.5) was steady in audience year-over-year but down two tenths in the demo.

CBS’ Big Brother is currently looking at 6.8 mil/2.1, though those numbers are subject to deflation due to NFL overrun. Check back later in the event I get industrious and post an update.
