SNF Tops World Series By 13 Percent In Overnights

Remember when I said football was king in the United States?

Well, it certainly appears that way after last night’s overnight ratings.

Going head-to-head with Game 4 of the World Series, NBC’s Sunday Night Football earned a 11.8 overnight rating and 18 share, making it the No. 1 program on Sunday night for the eighth straight week.

Rangers-Giants on Fox earned a 10.4 rating and 16 share from 8:30-11:30. Last night marked the first time that SNF on NBC went head-to-head against World Series.

Locally, the game earned a 52.2 rating and 68 share in Pittsburgh and 48.7/68 in New Orleans.

And in case you were wondering if the New Orleans Superdome set a new Guinness World Record for largest Halloween gathering, 17,777 fans were dressed in costume, easily topping the previous mark of 508.
