    Sunday’s Chargers-Cowboys game drew 24.1 million viewers nationwide, making it the most watched television program in the United States last week and the highest-rated CBS Sunday game of the season.

    The Chargers-Cowboys game last Sunday was the most-watched television program in the country last week, topping the charts with 24.1 million viewers, and ranks as CBS’ most-watched Sunday NFL telecast of the season.


    The game drew a 35.8 rating and 63 share in San Diego, making it the top show in the market by far. That means that more than one-third of all San Diego homes were watching the game, and 63% of all households that were watching TV at the time were watching the game.


    The game also ranked first in the Los Angeles and Orange County market. The game got a 13.0 rating and 32 share to rank first among all shows on TV last week in the country’s second-biggest market.


    NFL games topped the local ratings in 28 NFL markets last week. For the season, NFL games top the local market ratings 88 percent of the time – the highest percentage ever after 14 weeks.

    It was bigger than the SNF Eagles Giants matchup?

    That is kind of surprising. Our game wasn't even shown in at least one part of the country (Tennesse area where the Titan game was on I think at least)....

    I think the Cowboy december choker story line generated interest....
