UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- America's NBC television network says its prime time lineup is No. 1 in the 18-49 viewer age category during the November sweep for the first time since 2003.

NBC has topped 25 of 28 nights of programming with hits such as "The Voice," "Revolution," "Go On" and "Sunday Night Football" helping to drive the ratings, the network said Tuesday. The sweeps period concludes Wednesday night.

So far, CBS is No. 2, ABC No. 3 and Fox No. 4.

"The fact we jumped from fourth [place] to first, and haven't been in this position in nine years, is really astonishing to all of us," EW.com quoted NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt as saying during a conference call with reporters Tuesday. "It feels great ... there's a kind of intangible excitement in the building. I think it's infectious for our producers, our clients, our advertisers."
