NBC finished the 2017-2018 television season in first place in all key audience categories, boosted by its broadcast of the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics in South Korea, which were both ratings juggernauts. It was the first time in more than 15 years that NBC achieved that milestone. The upcoming season, which begins Monday, is expected to be more of a slog because NBC won’t have those big sporting events. CBS will televise the Super Bowl and rival Fox broadcasting will air NFL “Thursday Night Football,” a franchise that NBC and CBS shared last year.
