It seems like every week we discuss what great ratings the telecasts are getting. And you know what? There’s reason why: This is the most-watched season ever through the first nine weeks.

Better year (at least for the NFL execs): “NFL games account for the 14 most-watched programs on television since the NFL season kicked off on Sept. 9. This compares to NFL games accounting for the six most-watched shows at this point last season and none of the top 15 shows five years ago.”
A more numerical look at the success after the jump.
