For the second consecutive year, and fifth time (2010, 2011 and 2013) in 10 seasons, New Orleans was the top-rated "Sunday Night Football" market.
New Orleans averaged a 24.7 rating and 34 share for "Sunday Night Football" broadcasts this season.
When the Saints defeated the Cowboys on "Sunday Night Football" in late September, the broadcast on NBC earned a 57.0 rating and a 74 share, which means of all the televisions on in New Orleans on Sunday night, 74 percent were watching the Saints game.
The Saints' 57.0/74 local rating in New Orleans is the team's highest on NBC SNF since 2013 (58.1/73 for Panthers-Saints, 12/8/13).
The Dallas game attracted an average of 24.2 million TV viewers, making it the most-watched prime-time show this fall (Sept. 5, 2019-Dec. 29, 2019), roughly one million more TV viewers than Game 7 of the World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals.
New Orleans also scored the No.1 rating on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" top-10 metered markets in 2019.
