NFL games on Fox match best rating since 1998

BY foxsports • October 6, 2011

Fox's NFL coverage Sunday matched the highest television rating for the single-game broadcast window since 1998.

The network's eight games included the Detroit Lions' comeback against the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants' rally against the Arizona Cardinals. Among the other matchups were Panthers-Bears, 49ers-Eagles and Redskins-Rams.

The broadcast window averaged a 14.0 rating and 30 share and had the unusual distinction of drawing a higher rating than the national game on CBS and ''Sunday Night Football.''

Fox is averaging a 12.2/25 through four weeks, the highest since it started NFL coverage in 1994.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.
