LOS ANGELES, CA – Behind stunning upsets by the Carolina Panthers and Los Angeles Rams, FOX Sports’ Week 4 slate of National Football League singleheader coverage experienced year-to-year metered-market ratings gains and was the top-rated NFL telecast of the weekend. Yesterday’s singleheader on FOX delivered a 12.6/26 overnight rating/share according to Nielsen Media Research, up +14% over last year’s doubleheader average on FOX (vs. 11.1/22) and +20% over last year’s comparable singleheader coverage (vs. 10.5/22) on CBS. Sunday’s NFL coverage on FOX is the network’s best singleheader telecast since 2015.
Excluding NFL Week 1, in which ratings were heavily impacted due to Hurricane Irma, FOX Sports’ 2017 NFL coverage is up +1% in metered-market ratings over last year (vs. Weeks 2-4).
