The Jets, Not Yankees, Take Weekly Top Spot

By Jerry Barmash Comment

It was another Sunday Night Football appearance for the New York Jets. Gang Green was routed by the Ravens, 34-17. But the NBC game was number one in New York with an estimated 1.5 million viewers and a 7.7 rating, according to the Nielsen Company.

The Giants, with the late game heroics in a victory against the Cardinals, tied for third place. The Fox late-afternoon matchup had 1.2 million viewers and a 6.3 rating.

But it’s also the Yankees favorite time of the year–the post-season.

The American League Division Series resumed Saturday with the Yankees beating the Tigers in game one on TBS (1.1 million/6.0).

Even Friday’s two-inning rain-out registered high with a seventh-place finish (1 million/5.5).

ESPN’s Monday Night Football (Redskins/Cowboys) was 11th for the week (959,000/4.9).
