Favre's Return to Green Bay Gathers Big TV Ratings
NEW YORK (AP) -- Brett Favre's return to Green Bay was must-see viewing for NFL fans.

Fox's national game Sunday, which was mainly the Vikings' 38-26 win over the Packers, was the network's second most-watched Sunday telecast since it started airing the NFL in 1994, with 29.8 million viewers. The record was 32.1 million for 49ers-Cowboys in 1995.

The game drew a 17.4 rating and 32 share, up 26 percent from the comparable window last year.

The rating is the percentage of households with televisions tuned to a program. The share is the percentage of homes watching among those with TVs in use at the time.
