NEW YORK (AP) — A sports series is the most-watched prime-time show for an entire television season for the first time.

The NFL said Thursday that "Sunday Night Football" averaged the most viewers for the 2011-12 season. The games on NBC averaged 20.9 million viewers during the official TV season to beat out "American Idol," which drew a smaller audience than last year.
