NEW YORK -- NBC said its Olympic audience reached parity with the London Games for the first time on the third night of competition. But theres an asterisk involved in the claim.The network said that its total audience delivery was 31.5 million for the Olympics on Monday night in prime time, compared to the virtually identical 31.6 million who watched on the corresponding night in London in 2012.The total audience delivery figure is a statistic NBC hurriedly invented when it saw sharp declines in its traditional ratings for the first couple of nights of the Rio de Janeiro Games. The Nielsen company said the television audience on NBC on Monday was 28.9 million -- strong, but short of London levels.But NBC is adding the viewership for prime-time telecasts on cables NBCSN (1.6 million) and Bravo (720,000) and people who streamed video online (about 300,000) to boost the number to 31.5 million -- its total audience delivery.NBC says the comparison is valid because even though the cable viewers werent watching the same thing as people tuned in to NBC, they were still watching the Olympics. Theres no comparable number from 2012, because the company didnt allow its cable affiliates and website to compete with the prime-time NBC telecast four years ago.One of the indicators of changing viewer habits, especially with these Olympics, is that our digital consumption has more than tripled from London in each of the first three days of full competition, NBC Sports Group chairman Mark Lazarus said. Weve also been pleasantly surprised that our multi-platform strategy is paying big dividends.The new calculation is about more than bragging rights. NBC will use total audience delivery to convince advertisers that theyre reaching more viewers than the traditional Nielsen figures indicate.

Surrey Stars 106 for 3 (Beaumont 45*) beat Lancashire Thunder 102 for 9 (Satterthwaite 34*) by seven wicketsScorecard Alex Hartley and Tammy Beaumont led Surrey Stars to a comfortable seven-wicket bonus point victory at Guildford, against an out-of-sorts Lancashire Thunder in the Kia Super League.England left-arm spinner Hartley picked up figures of 3 for 11 off her allocated four overs, whilst Beaumont batted through the innings to finish on 45 not out, as Surrey Stars chased down 102 for 9, all but ending the chance of Lancashire Thunder reaching Finals Day.Thunder were indebted to New Zealand international Amy Statterthwaite (34no), with the overseas star having to hold her composure with wickets falling all around her.We are over the moon, even better that we got the bonus point and we move onto Friday for another important game said Hartley. It seems to be coming out quite nice for me, its nice to be in a little bit of form and hopefully I can keep it up.After winning the toss and inserting their opponents into bat, Surrey got off to a perfect start as Thunders overseas star Hayley Matthews was adjudged lbw off South African international Marizanne Kapp on the second ball of the match.That brought Statterthwaite to the crease, but it was opener Emma Lamb (27) that gave Lancashire some momentum, taking 16 off the second over of the match. However, when she became Kapps second wicket of the afternoon, the visitors began to implode.Hartley and Laura Marsh worked well in tandem to thwart any impetus from their opponents, with the latter taking two wickets in an over including that of prize overseas star Deandra Dottin without sscoring.ddddddddddddDanni Wyatts first ball duck further put Thunder on the back foot and they were not helped by run-outs, as first Natasha Miles was left short thanks to Cordelia Griffiths fast reactions, before Marsh ran out Ellie Threlkeld.Lancashire captain Statterthwaite could only watch from the other end as their opponents, cheered on by a crowd heading towards 1,000, seemed switched on from ball one.Their day was summed up perfectly, as Natalie Brown was run out off the last ball, with Lea Tahuhu hitting directly from deep, as Lancashire limped to 102 for 9.Surrey began their chase in style racing to 49 for 0 off their Powerplay overs, with Beaumont playing second fiddle early on to Bryony Smith (30), who blasted the ball to all parts, before going for one to many big shots, finding the safe hands of Statterthwaite off Dottin.Stars captain Natalie Sciver became a victim to the West Indies contingent as she was caught in the deep by Dottin off Matthews, before Griffith was caught behind off Sophie Ecclestone, who was the pick of the bowlers for Thunder.Beaumont and Kapp finished off proceedings to give Surrey Stars the bonus point win and they now go head-to-head with Loughborough Lightning on Friday for a place in Finals Day at Chelmsford.Statterthwaite said It felt like a tricky pitch to me, I didnt feel in throughout my innings but then the way they played showed that there was no real demons in it. It felt sticky at times but I think we were just too timid on it and we just didnt kick on.
