Sunday night football opened big for NBC, though it was down from the premiere game a year ago. However, the Broncos jumped out to a 24-0 lead over the Indianapolis Colts, which may have caused some viewers to change the channel.
Elsewhere, FOX's new reality show "Utopia" opened with weak premiere numbers. The first hour drew 5.3 million, but the second hour fell to 3.9 million. Over on CBS, "Big Brother" was down slightly, while "Unforgettable" and "Reckless" were both up, the latter hitting a series high in total viewers.
