NEW YORK — Highlights from media coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics:

RATINGS: An estimated 18.6 million viewers watched the Olympics in prime time Monday on either NBC, the cable network NBCSN or streaming services. That's down 21 percent from the 23.5 million viewers who saw the Olympics on the corresponding Monday night in Sochi four years ago. The 16.3 million who watched the NBC telecast Monday was down 31 percent from Sochi. NBC says the average prime-time viewership for Pyeongchang is 21.1 million, but no individual evening has topped the 20 million figure since last Tuesday.
