49ers’ thrilling playoff run is drawing a huge TV audience

The 49ers have proven a lot in these last two weeks in the playoffs.

But the thing that may be resonating with the NFL the most? It’s good for the NFL’s bottom line when the 49ers are in the playoffs.

It’s been back-to-back weeks of massive television ratings numbers coming out of the 49ers’ two games, when each was against a longtime rival and went down to the final play.

This past weekend’s face-off in frozen Green Bay had 36.9 million viewers on FOX, which FOX says is the most-watched Saturday show since the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. And, according to SportsBusinessJournal, 67 percent of television viewers in the Bay Area were tuned in to the game.

It was part of a rating bonanza weekend for the NFL, which saw all four games crack 30 million viewers and the Buffalo-Kansas City game bring in 42.7 million viewers — as well as seeing 90 percent of viewers in the Kansas City market tuned in to the game in the insane fourth quarter.

The wild-card round win over the Cowboys saw 41.5 million viewers tune in to CBS, per the SportsBusinessJournal, which was the most for any wild-card game in seven years. That game peaked at 50.2 million viewers in its final hour, as people tuned in to watch the 49ers hold off a desperate Cowboys comeback attempt.
