You know what that refers to. Anyway, Fox got excellent ratings for its Week 7 and I believe they’re going up for this Sunday especially with the football leading into the World Series that night and no Sunday Night Football game. Look out.
NFL ON FOX SETS DOUBLEHEADER AUDIENCE RECORD
FOX Sports kicked off an extraordinary week on Sunday (10/25) with the most-watched NFL Doubleheader in FOX history. Sunday’s WEEK 7 twin-bill averaged a remarkable 14.1/29 and 23.5 million viewers, which sets a new audience record. FOX’s previous high of 22.9 million was set on 11/12/95 (led by a 49ers/Cowboys national game). Sunday’s 14.1/29 average rating makes this FOX’s third highest-rated NFL doubleheader ever.
Sunday’s Doubleheader was kick-started by a record-setting (rating & viewership) 11.4/25 (18.5 million viewers) regional window in which most markets saw Vikings-Steelers. The national game, led by Atlanta-Dallas, earned a 16.8/32 (28.4 mill.), the highest NFL rating on any network this season and FOX’s most-watched Sunday NFL game in 13 years. Season-to-date, FOX continues to experience its strongest start ever, up +14% over last year in rating (11.4/24 vs. 10.0/21) and +18% on average audience (18.8 mill. vs. 15.9).
