NBC’s coverage of the London Olympics saw prime-time viewing finish up by 8% over the Games in Beijing. That increase allowed the London Summer Games the highest-rated staged outside the United States since 1976.

NBC’s overall London coverage drew a total of 219.4 million unique viewers. A unique viewer is if they watch at least six minutes. That broke the record from Beijing and became the USA television event with the most viewers of all-time.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie A.J. Green is starting to become the new star at wide receiver now that Chad Ochocinco is gone.

The quiet rookie from the University of Georgia caught 2 passes for just 25 yards in Sunday’s 23-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but it allowed him to pass fan-favorite Cris Collinsworth for the franchise record for rookie receiving yards.

Green now has 1,031 yards to eclipse the 1,009 that Collinsworth, currently a broadcaster for NBC, amassed in 1981.

Collinsworth still holds the record for receptions by a rookie with 67. Green currently is at 63 and has a chance to tie or even pass that mark this week against the Baltimore Ravens.
