“THE NFL ON CBS” SCORES WITH SECOND HIGHEST RATING FOR

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME IN 27 YEARS

 

CBS Sports’ coverage of the 2014 AFC Championship Game featuring the Denver Broncos defeating the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 19 (3:00-6:15 PM, ET), earned an average overnight household rating/share of 29.5/52, which is the second-highest rating in the metered markets for an AFC Championship in 27 years (1/11/87; 31.9 HH rating; Denver-Cleveland -OT; NBC).

 

The 29.5/52 is up 13% from the early-game window last year (26.1/48; San Francisco-Atlanta), and up 6% from last year’s 27.9/42 for Baltimore-New England, which aired in the late window.

 

This year’s AFC Championship Game rating peaked at a 32.8/55 from 5:30-6:00 PM, ET.

    Why Patriots play so well in the season and let us down in AFC game?
    Brady was so horrible playing yesterday that made me angry.

  • Just Because

    Pats can’t win without cheating. Sorry ’boutcha, Douglas from Brazil! Glad to know our friends south of the boarder are tuning in to American “football”.

    And Tom Brady falls to 1-4 in Championship games vs. the Manning Brothers. But, he’s still 2-0 vs. Tim Tebow.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    @Just Because,

    I dont agree with Pats win cheating but it’s ok, they played terrible last night with Brady being tackled.

    Yes.Brazil has a solid fan base of American Football and for me is the most emotional and terrific sport in the world.The games always make me eat my fingers!

    I wonder if the Pats are still the most hated team in the league….forever hunted by the cheating scandal. I think it will die down when Belacheat finally leaves.
