Revenue for NBC, CBS and ABC rose 4.8% in the third quarter to $1.62B from $1.55B last year. The increase "chiefly reflected a 19% jump in sports revenue." Revenue for sports programming increased to $248.2M over the $202.8M of last year, with the return of MLB and a "solid" NFL schedule "contributing" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11/10).
