RENTON — You wouldn’t be wrong to say that half of Seattle was watching when the Seahawks played at Washington on Sunday.
That might not be most accurate measure of just how many people were turned in, though.
The game got a 46.7 <strike>share</strike> rating — which translates to 46.7 percent of the households in the Seattle-Tacoma area — and a 76 <strike>rating</strike>. That means that more than three of four TV sets in use were turned to the game.
According to FOX Sports, the wildcard game was the most watched program on any network since NBC’s Olympics coverage on July 31. The game had a 21.5 rating and 36 share with 38.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
