NBC Rides Broncos-Packers Game to Super Win Super ratings for the Super Bowl on Sunday sent NBC soaring in the seasonal standings against CBS, ABC and Fox, solidifying the network's bid to win the prime-time championship for the third year in a row. NBC said Super Bowl XXXII, in which the John Elway-led Denver Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers, 31-24, tied with Super Bowl XXVII as the third most-watched TV program in history, with an estimated 133.4 million viewers watching at least part of the football game. They trail Super Bowl XXX with 138.4 million viewers and Super Bowl XXVIII with 134.8 million. According to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research, NBC also did well elsewhere last week, posting winning numbers with its Tuesday and Thursday lineups and two nights of figure skating. Fox, meanwhile, said "Ally McBeal" scored its best ratings ever last week in the wake of being named best comedy at the Golden Globe Awards. It ranked No. 25 overall. LEE MARGULIESI National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-lime network television last week (Jan. 19-25) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.
