That's at least good to hear they did good overall, even considering a lot of new stuff being shown on a lot of networks. One thing that thankfully is good for NBC is that some of the premieres have been either decent or people are just "one and done" for the premieres that were on last week and didn't bother this week. Another thing for a possibility is that people DVR'ed the shows on the other networks.
Ratings already factor in DVR's. Overall they were 11th in viewers and 9th in demo (4th in network) but as a comparison with all of last summer and against real competition it did okay. Until I see the cable numbers I don't think they were blown out by double digits. We'll see in a couple of days. Still though seems more people liked this than ANW.. so they might do this yearly as a bonus since they area already blocking the Americans on showing up on Sasuke Japan as it is.
