Nielsen: Football and other fancy footwork ruled in prime time last week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Fancy footwork ruled in the ratings last week, both on the gridiron and on the dance floor.

The Nielsen company says NBC's Thanksgiving Day NFL clash between Pittsburgh and Baltimore seized the top spot in prime time, drawing 21 million viewers. Other football games and related sportscasts took four more of the week's Top 10 slots.

Meanwhile, ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" ranked fifth and sixth for the week, Nielsen says.

The zombies of "The Walking Dead" claimed 10th place, scaring up 12 million viewers for AMC.

CBS won the week overall in prime time, averaging more than 9 million viewers. Close behind was NBC, with ABC in third place.

ESPN was the week's most popular cable network, averaging more than 3 million viewers.
