Vikings-Packers Third Best SNF Ever

Last night’s Sunday Night Football game between Minnesota and Green Bay was the third-best SNF overnight ever, earning a 16.0 rating and a 25 share.

Ratings were up 54 percent compared to last year’s Week 7 SNF game (Arizona-NY Giants, 10.4/16) and 122 percent from 2008 (Seattle-Tampa Bay, 7.2/11).

SNF is expected to be the most-watched Sunday night show for the seventh consecutive week when viewership is available tomorrow from Nielsen.

Locally, over half the television markets in Milwaukee and Minneapolis were tuned in as the game did a 53.1/68 and 51.5/68 respectively.

Pay close attention next week’s numbers as Week 8 of SNF between Pittsburgh and New Orleans goes against Game 4 of the World Series on Fox.

Good luck, Major League Baseball.
