NFL football continued to generate solid ratings for NBC Sunday night, as the contest between Dallas and Carolina produced a 12.4 rating and a 19 share, roughly the average rating that the football telecasts have produced over the first eight weeks of the season. Still, CBS and ABC had much to boast about on Sunday, too. CBS scored the overall highest average of any network for the night, with 60 Minutes drawing a 13.2/21 in the first hour. And ABC nailed the highest rating of any network for the night with Desperate Housewives, which scored a 13.9/20.
