NFL opener attracts record TV audience
19.3 million viewers tune in to watch Steelers beat Dolphins 24-17

NEW YORK - A record 19.3 million viewers for a Thursday night opener tuned in to watch the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers defeat the Miami Dolphins 28-17 in the fourth year since the NFL switched its schedule to begin Thursday nights.

NBC?s first regular-season broadcast in eight years had a 12.6 household rating and a 21 share, Nielsen Media Research said Friday. It was the highest rating since the first NFL Thursday night kickoff on network television in 2003 had a 12.9 rating.

Each ratings point represents 1,102,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation?s estimated 110.2 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show
