This should come as news only to those “reporters” out there who were soiling themselves last night. Instead of watching tired old sexual harassers, fake Indians and 57-year-old college students playing the victim, Americans tuned out in droves for some traditional American fare:
NBC was the number 1 network with adults 18-49, and total viewers.
On NBC, NFL Kickoff scored a 5.5 adults 18-49 rating, down 14% from a 6.4 fast national for last year’s telecast on Thursday, September 8. The NFL Football game, featuring the Cowboys versus the Giants, garnered a 8.7 among adults 18-49, down 15% from a 10.2 fast national for last year’s telecast on Thursday, September 8.
