Week 16 Wrap: Slight Bump For Giants/Ravens National Window


FOX had a modest rise in viewership for the Week 16 NFL national window.

The Week 16 NFL national window, featuring Giants/Ravens in 83% of markets, earned 24.2 million viewers on FOX last Sunday — up 6% from coverage featuring Eagles/Cowboys on a Saturday last year (22.9M), and virtually even with coverage featuring Giants/Packers in 2010 (24.3M). Final household ratings were not immediately available.

The game is tied as the eleventh-most viewed of the NFL season.

Sunday marked just the sixth time this season that the NFL national window has had an increase in viewership compared to last year (16 telecasts).
