    Football Rules Sunday Night
    NBC's Sunday Night Football continued to devastate its rivals as Sunday's match-up between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys averaged 18.4 million viewers. That was 14 percent above the 16.1 million viewers who tuned into ABC's Monday Night Football one year ago, which also featured the same teams. The game registered an 11.9 rating and a 19 share versus last year's 10.8/18. In a statement, the network observed, "The ratings increase is especially impressive given the Cowboys' lopsided 27-10 win last night, while last year's game featured a Redskins' come-from-behind fourth-quarter 14-13 victory." The biggest loser of the night, however, may not have been the Redskins but CBS, which programmed a 90-minute The Amazing Race season premiere against the game. The program averaged just 10.1 million viewers to wind up in third place. ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition fared slightly better with 11.5 million viewers. But neither show even came close to attracting the more than 13 million viewers who tuned in a week earlier to Pt. 1 of the controversial ABC miniseries, The Path to 9/11.

    From USA Today's Heistand:
    Sunday replaces Monday as the NFL's prime-time broadcast window. But here's an asterisk in comparisons to last year's Week 2 MNF game, which was also Redskins-Cowboys: That 2005 night, there was a Katrina charity fund-raising event that included a second Monday night game on ESPN (Saints-Giants) that drew viewers away from MNF.

    Madden does make the game more entertaining and he's not as biased as other announcers, except when it comes to Brett Favre.:lmao2:

    The joy of living on the west coast is that I could watch the football AND Amazing Race without the assistance of a VCR.
