Thanks, Tom Brady! Ageless Quarterback Aids NBC in Ratings

Two prime-time football games led NBC to a weekly ratings win, as it averaged 7.8 million viewers. CBS had 3.5 million viewers in prime time, ABC had 3 million, Fox had 2.4 million, Univision had 1.4 million, Ion Television had 1.12 million and Telemundo had 1.06 million.

NEW YORK  — NBC owes Tom Brady a thank you note. The ageless Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback led a charge in the annual NFL kickoff game, reaching some 24.8 million last Thursday for the matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. That represented a healthy increase from the 2020 season opener, which the Nielsen company said was seen by 19.3 million viewers. Given the general trend in television, any event that grows from year to year can be seen as a success. The season debut of ‘Sunday Night Football’ was less successful, reaching 17.6 million, down from 2020. Brady wasn’t available Sunday.

Fox News Channel led the cable networks in prime time, averaging 2.23 million viewers. ESPN had 1.89 million, HGTV had 1.07 million, MSNBC had 1.06 million and TLC had 910,000.

ABC’s “World News Tonight” won the evening news ratings race, averaging 7.8 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 6.4 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 4.6 million.
