High NFL Ratings Continue for Fox

Fox Sports is reporting that yesterday’s Cowboys/Giants national NFL telecast is the highest rated game of the season on the network.

The 18.9 rating is also the highest on Fox since the two teams registered a 19.1 number in 2006.

Also from Fox Sports PR:

The season-high rating raises FOX’s National Game average to a 16.7/31 this season, by far the highest-rated show on television and a +29% advantage over NBC’s 12.9/21 for SNF in prime time.  FOX’s Week 13 REGIONAL GAME earned a 10.5/21.  Season-to-date FOX is now averaging a 12.8/26 in the metered markets for all games, up +8% over last year’s 11.9/24.  The NFL on FOX is also beating CBS by +11% (vs. 11.5/23) and FOX is now within a tenth of SNF on NBC (12.9/21).

Yesterday’s Saints/Redskins OT game generated a massive 53.1/74 in New Orleans which is the third-highest individual market rating for a regular- season NFL on FOX game all-time, and the highest since 1997.  It is also the highest-rated regular season NFL on FOX game in New Orleans ever, and this is the fifth time this season that New Orleans has posted a new single game high for the market.  The only other times a single market posted a higher rating than NOLA did yesterday was Milwaukee twice in 1997 (55.8/84 on 12/7 for GB/TB and 54.3/78 on 12/14 for GB/Carolina).
