Both NBC’s Sunday Night Football featuring the Philadelphia Eagles against the New York Giants and CBS’ Indianapolis Colts-New England Patriots game saw ratings jump more than 10 percent from 2009.
The nighttime match up earned the Peacock a 15.9/24 overnight rating, an increase of 31 percent over last year’s Week 11 game (Eagles-Bears, 12.1/19), while the afternoon tilt scored a 16.7/30, “up 12 percent from last year’s 14.9/28 in the metered markets.” (On the year, CBS is averaging 12.8/25, up 10 percent from 2009.)
The Eagles-Giants fixture was the fourth-highest SNF telecast ever, trailing two from earlier this season and the all-time winner, last year’s Giants-Dallas Cowboys game that opened Dallas Cowboys Stadium.
