peyton-manning-gi-320.jpgFast National ratings for Sunday, November 28, 2010.

Football viewership dipped during the holiday weekend, but still stayed strong enough to give NBC a win on Sunday in both households and in the adult demo.
FOX also bit into viewership by starting the night with an expected boost from the football runover, but still fell behind CBS in total viewers, which had a pretty strong showing for its Hallmark movie "November Christmas."

NBC drew 13.5 million viewers and a 8.2 rating/13 share in households for Sunday. CBS followed with 12.5 million and an 7.6/12, then FOX (10.4 million, 5.9/9) and ABC (5.5 million, 3.3/5).

The adult 18-49 demo title also went to NBC with a 4.9 rating, followed by FOX, 4.3, CBS, 2.3, and ABC, 1.4.
