Sunday Night Football Earns 14.2 Overnight Rating

Sunday Night Football recorded their fourth best overnight of the 2010 NFL season during New England’s 39-26 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, earning a 14.2 overnight rating and 22 share.

It was the best SNF overnight rating since the Week 7 showdown between Minnesota and Green Bay, which was the most-watched game since NBC started broadcasting Sunday night games in 2006.

However, it was no match for last year’s Week 10 game between the Patriots and Indianapolis, which registered a 15.1 overnight rating and 24 share.

Below are the top metered markets for Patriots-Steelers:

  1. Pittsburgh, 49.2/64
  2. Boston, 37.0/54
  3. Providence, 27.1/39
  4. Baltimore, 21.9/33
  5. Las Vegas, 21.4/31
  6. New Orleans, 19.9/27
  7. Norfolk, 19.7/29
  8. Nashville, 17.6/23
  9. Indianapolis, 17.4/26
  10. Washington, D.C., 17.2/28
