NBC was the top-rated network on Sunday night again thanks to its National Football League game starring Bret Favre, reports TVbytheNumbers.com.

At 7 p.m. CBS benefited from its NFL late-game overrun, scoring a 5.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic for the top of the hour, along with a 3.2 for the bottom of the hour with "60 Minutes." NBC’s broadcast of "Football Night in America" earned an average rating of 3.7 for the hour, while ABC’s "America’s Funniest Home Videos" had a mean score of 1.8 in the 18-49 demo.

At 8 p.m. NBC’s pregame and the kickoff of the game between Favre’s Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers averaged a 7.6 rating for the hour in 18-49. "60 Minutes" and "Amazing Race" gave CBS an average rating of 3.35 for the hour, and ABC’s "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" managed an average of 2.45.

In the 9 p.m. hour the NBC broadcast of the game logged a 9.1 rating and an 8.4 for the two half-hours, while ABC’s "Desperate Housewives" netted an average rating of 3.95 and CBS’s "Amazing Race"/"Undercover Boss" combination was good enough for a 3.4 in 18-49.

The 10 p.m. hour was dominated by NBC’s football telecast, which had an 8.3 average for the hour. CBS’s "Boss" and "CSI: Miami" had ratings of 3.2 and 2.4, respectively, and ABC’s "Brothers & Sisters" trailed with a 2.7 rating and a 2.4 for the top and bottom of the hour in the 18-49 demo.
