The Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints got together for the opening game of the 2010 NFL season on Thursday night. The Saints were the only winners last night -- NBC did as well.â†µ
The overnight ratings are a 17.7 rating and a 28 share.
That means that this was game was the highest watched season opener in NFL history. It makes sense considering the star power with guys like Brett Favre and Drew Brees.â†µ
The 28 share means that 28% of all Americans with a TV on last night watched this game.â†µ
So, yeah, people are ready for football season.
