NFL Week 10: Despite Decline, Strong Numbers For FOX National Window

Posted by | November 15, 2011 at 3:50 PM

Though down slightly from last year, Sunday’s NFL national window scored strong numbers on FOX.

The Week 10 NFL national window, featuring Giants/49ers in 70% of markets, earned a 17.2 overnight rating on FOX Sunday — down 2% from Week 10 last year (DAL/NYG*: 17.6), and up 2% from Week 10 in 2009 (DAL/GB*: 16.9).

The 17.2 is tied as the third-highest NFL overnight of the season, behind only the Week 9 national window (NYG/NE*: 18.9), and the Week 6 national window (DAL/NE*: 19.1), both of which aired on FOX.

For the ninth time in ten weeks this season, the NFL national window drew a higher overnight than NBC’s Sunday night game.

Overnight ratings for the first half of Sunday’s doubleheader (featuring Saints/Falcons in 65% of markets) were not immediately available.
