Sunday’s Vikings-Packers game not only produced a monster Twin Cities rating — a 47, meaning 47 percent of all household with TVs — it topped last February’s Super Bowl.
And for good measure, Favre’s homecoming racked up a 76 percent share. That meant three-quarters of all households with TVs on watched the game, more than the past three Super Bowls locally.
Cherry on top for Fox9: The game had an 86 percent share among men ages 25 to 54. So guys, if you weren’t watching, you are truly special. [Update: Share among all 25-to-54 adults was 79 percent. Overall, 822,000 Twin Cities households were tuned in.]
Here’s the data:
Vikes-Packers (11/1/09): 47 rating, 76 share
Super Bowl 2009 (Steelers-Cardinals): 45.6 rating, 68 share
Super Bowl 2008 (Giants-Patriots): 49 rating, 74 share
