Games on CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN and the NFL Network averaged 15 million viewers in 2007, up 3 percent from the previous year.
On CBS, Fox and NBC, the average was 16.6 million. Prime-time programs on the four major over-the-air networks drew an average of 8.7 million for the year.
The gap between NFL games and prime-time fare on the major networks has been growing. In 2002, NFL games averaged 15.8 million viewers, compared with 10.3 million for the prime-time shows.
