49ers-Cowboys a TV winner: Most-watched wild card game in seven years

The 49ers may have been better than the Cowboys on Sunday, but together they were an unbeatable combination on television, delivering the highest-rated NFL wild card game in seven years.

The 49ers’ rapid 23–17 victory over Dallas garnered an average of 41.50 million viewers on the network CBS and Nickelodeon’s kid-friendly “SlimeCast”. This made Sunday’s game the highest-rated TV event on any network since last February’s Super Bowl LV.

No wonder why Troy Aikman felt like he had been thinned out. The Fox analyst was jealous of the CBS crew, while he and partner Joe Buck were calling Tampa Bay’s one-sided victory over Philadelphia.

During the Eagles’ second half of the Buccaneers, Buck was discussing the upcoming 49ers-Cowboys game, which was knocked out by Ackman.

Before deadpanning, former Cowboys star quarterback Aikman said, “It’s going to be a great game.. a really good game.”

Viewership for the 49ers-Cowboys game topped the end of the predictably tight game, when more than 50 million people were watching. The average viewership of 41.50 million was the highest for any wild card game since the Cowboys-Lions game on Fox in 2015, which attracted 42.32 million.
