Seahawks-Cowboys game most-watched TV program since Academy Awards

Put the defending Super Bowl champs against America’s Team, and the result is a pretty unbeatable combination for television.

With the final TV numbers for the weekend now in, we learn just how unbeatable a combo it was as the Seattle-Dallas game turned out to be the most-watched TV show in the country since the Academy Awards last March.

The website TVByTheNumbers breaks it down, reporting that the game was watched by 30 million viewers nationwide.

The website also states that:

More significantly, it’s the NFL on FOX’s highest-rated regular season broadcast in nearly three years and is the most-watched NFL on FOX regular season Sunday broadcast in 19 years.

As might be expected, the game also did really well in Dallas.

As noted here a few days ago, the game actually was the second-highest rated Seahawks contest this season behind the Monday Nighter against Washington.
