Bears Win Over Jets Seen by Record TV Audience

The Bears topped the Jets Sunday in Chicago, and it was seen by a record TV audience. The game had the highest preliminary television rating for the single-game window in the 13 seasons of the current AFC package for CBS.

The CBS games Sunday averaged a 15.4 overnight rating and 30 share, the best since the network took over AFC coverage in 1998. The other matchups seen in parts of the country were Baltimore-Cleveland, Tennessee-Kansas City, New England-Buffalo, Indianapolis-Oakland, San Diego-Cincinnati and Houston-Denver.

On a day a blizzard hit the Northeast, the rating easily outdistanced the 14.3 most recently set Oct. 17 behind the Patriots’ overtime win over the Ravens.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight ratings measure the country’s largest markets.

    Bah Humbug…this is the first time I can remember we did’t get the Bears feed. Instead we had to watch boring St Louis game. I wonder why we didn’t get the feed.
