Thursday's ratings: NFL scores for NBC

Posted on

NBC’s NFL game trounced the competition last night, beating all other shows combined in the 9:30-10:00 p.m. slot, where it pulled in over 20 million viewers. Even CBS’s Big Brother couldn’t keep up, dropping 1 million viewers from last week. The CW’s Vampire Diaries, however, came up huge for the network, bringing in more viewers than this week’s premieres of 90201, Melrose Place, and ANTM.
