Broncos Part of Massive NFL Ratings

Posted Jan 8, 2014

The Broncos played in ten of the top-25 most watched NFL games this season.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Since the start of the 2013 regular season, 34 of the top 35 most-watched television programs were NFL games.

The Broncos played in 10 of the top 25 of those games, with six games in the top 15 and two in the top five.

Denver’s win in Dallas on Oct. 6 was the Broncos’ most-watched game, as it was viewed by 28.3 million people – the fourth-largest TV audience of the season. The second matchup with the Chiefs came in right behind the Dallas game with 28.1 million viewers, putting that game fifth on the list.

The only non-football game on the list of the top-35 most watched programs was the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which came in 22nd place with 25.2 million viewers.

Though the parade garnered a sizable TV audience, it was still just the third-most watched program of the day as the Packers-Lions game on FOX and drew 28.3 million viewers and the Raiders-Cowboys game on CBS set the high-mark for the season with 31.8 million viewers.

For the season, 205 million unique viewers tuned into NFL games this year, representing 81 percent of television homes and 70 percent of potential American viewers according to the Nielsen Company. An average of 17.6 million people tuned in to each telecast, a number bested by only the 2010 season, which averaged 17.9 million.

Just like last season, in each of the 17 weeks, an NFL game was the most-watched program and for the fourth consecutive year Sunday Night Football was the most-watched program of the fall season. The Week 17 SNF showdown between the Eagles and the Cowboys that decided the fate of the NFC East had 27.4 million viewers, making it the ninth-most watched game of the season and the most-watched primetime game in regular-season history.

Monday Night Football was the most-watched series on cable for the eighth consecutive season. Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network had its best season with an average of 8.1 million viewers, making it the most-watched Thursday Program on cable.
