Athletes Win One for NBC

NBC is finally getting a break with the whole Summer Olympics thing. The peacock network is the most-watched network on TV this week, according to the Nielsen ratings. It’s the first time the network has managed to come out on top since June.

Despite the fact that the network’s improved ranking has much to do with its Olympics coverage, ratings for the games, which are taking place this year in Sydney, Australia, has slipped 10 percent from the Barcelona, Spain, games in 1992 and 16.2 percent from the Seoul, South Korea, coverage in 1988.
