In Philadelphia, the game got an 11.0 rating on ESPN and a 24.1 rating on WPVI (I can’t believe this many people still default to broadcast TV) for a total of 35.1– basically, one out of every three households in the Philadelphia market was watching the game. The game drew a slightly higher 38.8 rating in D.C., though I would imagine many of those people turned their TVs off at some point.
For a little perspective: The Eagles-Giants game last October on NBC drew a 31.1 rating locally and a 15.6 rating nationally, the latter of which was undoubtedly influenced by the game being on broadcast TV. The Phillies’ local ratings peaked in 2011 at around 9.1. So, yeah, football!
