More Nielsen gold during NBC's final Olympics week
NEW YORK (AP) - Nielsen says NBC can toast its final golden week of Olympics coverage, which again gave it the seven most-watched prime-time telecasts. And there was a bonus: An eighth broadcast from Sochi on Sunday also landed in last week's Top 10.
Monday was NBC's biggest night, seen by more than 23 million viewers to be the week's No. 1 program.
The least-followed night of coverage, Saturday, placed seventh for the week.
"Sochi Gold," aired prior to Sunday's closing ceremonies, ranked ninth.
In eighth place was AMC's "The Walking Dead," with 13 million viewers.
Overall for the week in prime time, NBC averaged nearly 18 million viewers. CBS and Fox were tied with 6 million viewers apiece, followed by ABC.
The week's top-rated cable networks were USA, Disney Channel and TBS.
