NEW YORK (AP) -- Another day, some more record Olympic ratings for NBC.
The Nielsen company said that NBC's prime-time coverage of the Olympics on Sunday was seen by 36 million people. That's the largest audience ever for the second night of competition for an Olympics taking place outside the United States. Three nights in a row, including Friday's opening ceremony, NBC set viewership records.
NBC is averaging 35.8 million viewers in prime time over the three nights, up from the 30.6 million for the same period in Beijing.
Many online complaints about NBC's tape-delay strategy have flooded social media -- but many of these complainers seem to be watching.
