Packers-Giants Game Scores Big in TV Ratings
The undefeated Green Bay Packers’ last-second win over the New York Giants helped draw the highest television rating for a regular-season NFL game since 2007.
The national broadcast window on Fox on Sunday earned a 17.6 rating and 30 share. The network said Tuesday that was the best since an 18.4/32 mainly for Steelers-Patriots four years ago.
Most viewers saw the Packers-Giants game in the window, with some parts of the country getting Cowboys-Cardinals or Rams-49ers.
Ratings measure the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of TVs in use at the time.
