NBC won the ratings race last night in total viewers and adults 18-49 with Sunday Night Football, but by how much we won’t know until final ratings are released tomorrow. The usually reliable metered markets overnights for last night exclude major markets because of Hurricane Irene-related power outages. In the not-time-zone-adjusted fast nationals, SNF’s preseason game between the New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders currently runs behind last week’s fast nationals, but the fast nationals numbers for last night have also been impacted by local hurricane coverage preemptions and will undergo significant adjustments. CBS’ Big Brother (2.9/9 in 18-49) was down 9% from last Sunday. ABC’s 20/20 The Sixth Sense (1.6/4) was up 23%, while Fox’s sketch comedy In the Flow with Affion Crockett (1.0/2) was down 9%. We’re still waiting to see numbers for MTV’s VMA Awards.
