Seahawks game draws another big TV rating

The Seahawks may have lost on the field Sunday. But their TV rating was another winner, this time for FOX, which had the Seattle-San Diego game as part of its Sunday afternoon regional package.

In Seattle, the game drew a rating of 34.7 and a share of 71 (the rating is the percentage of all TVs tuned to the game, and the share is the percentage of all TVs in use at the time tuned to the game).

That was the second-largest local audience for FOX Sunday, topped by the 46.2 rating and 71 share in New Orleans for the Saints-Browns game.

The rating was just off the 42.2 rating and 73 share for the Thursday night opener against Green Bay (prime time games often draw larger audiences than Sunday afternoons).

And the Seahawks squashed the local competition, with the Mariners-Oakland game — televised on ROOT at the same time — getting a 1.7 rating and four share.

Nationally, the ratings for most NFL games were down a little bit from week two in 2013 though the 49eres-Bears game Sunday night on NBC was the most-watched West Coast NFL prime time game in history.
