NBC's Michigan-Notre Dame Overnight Leads Heavy Slate Of Primetime College Football

NBC’s Michigan-Notre Dame game earned a 4.0 overnight Nielsen rating on Saturday, topping a loaded slate of college football telecasts for the day, including three broadcast TV games in primetime. NBC’s 4.0 overnight is up 24% over the net’s first primetime Notre Dame telecast last season against USC in late October. ABC earned a 3.2 overnight for the Clemson-Florida State game in primetime, down 20% compared to a 4.0 overnight for the comparable LSU-West Virginia last year. Among games earlier on Saturday, ABC’s regionalized coverage and CBS’ Missouri-South Carolina led the way (both earned a 2.4 overnight in the 3:30pm ET window). ABC’s regional window featured Temple-Penn State and Oregon State-UCLA.
