NFL blows out baseball in TV ratings

The NFL’s dominance over the American television landscape continues.

Sunday night’s Eagles-49ers game drew an 11.7 overnight rating, easily topping the 3.9 rating for the Phillies-Reds baseball playoff game.

Sunday Night Football has been the top-rated Sunday night show on television all five weeks this season.
