Voila_Capture90240.1. 40.1% of households with TVs in Philly had the Eagles-Cowboys game on last night. 58% of households watching TV in the Philly market had the game on.

Those are records.

From NBC’s PR department:

The 16.8 overnight for the Eagles’ two-point Sunday Night Football victory, highlighted by Nick Foles’ 263 passing yards and two touchdowns and LeSean McCoy’s 131 rushing yards and one scoring catch, is the seventh-highest Sunday overnight in the eight-year history of NBC’s primetime package (excluding NFL Kickoff games) and ranks third this season behind Peyton Manning’s return to Indianapolis on October 20 (17.3) and “Manning-Brady XIV” on Nov. 24 (17.0).

SNF’s 16.8 overnight more than doubled the top regularly-scheduled primetime program (7.4 for60 Minutes). In the Adults 18-49 demographic, Sunday Night Football easily won the night posting a 10.2 rating (in the 25 markets used to calculate the overnight demo) – 343% better than the top entertainment show in the demo (The Simpsons).

It was the seventh-highest rated SNF game on NBC ever and third-highest this season. But the real win was the local market rating– it set a SNF local record, at 40.1 (I predicted 39…). That’s roughly 1.2 million households.

Still, the question remains: What were the other 42% of assholes in Philadelphia who were watching TV but not watching the Eagles doing?
