- Booming kickoff. NBC’s return to NFL broadcasts scored a touchdown as Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts-New York Giants game became the week’s most-watched program (22.6 million viewers). It averaged more than every regular-season game on ABC’s Monday Night Football going back to September 2000. Thursday’s opener
on NBC between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins was No. 3 (19.2 million). The games were the week’s top two prime-time broadcasts among advertiser-coveted young adults.
And by no means was the Sunday night game tecnhically flawless, but this screenshot from Monday night is of a graphic never meant to see live television that just screamed for a picture (click to enlarge and see the funny flub).
