Favre is still a Ratings star

Say what you will about QB Brett Favre; the man can still draw ratings.

The Minnesota Vikings return to Green Bay on Sunday night, drew a 16 overnight rating for NBC, which translates into 16% of households in the 56 urban TV markets measured for overnights. That’s up a whopping 54% from NBC’s comparable coverage of an Arizona-New York Giants game last year. And that is the best overnight for a primetime October NFL game since a Minnesota-Green Bay game in 1998 drew a 17.5.
