Phelps’ Win Gives NBC Record Ratings

Aug 18, 2008  •  Post A Comment

NBC’s Saturday night coverage of the Olympic Games drew an average of 31.3 million viewers, with over 40 million viewers watching the 11 p.m. half hour featuring Michael Phelps’ record-setting gold-medal victory, Daily Variety reports. Those numbers are an 18-year best for the network, coming in as NBC’s most-watched Saturday night since a 1990 episode of the “Golden Girls” spin off “Empty Nest,” the trade says.
