The Green Bay Packers not only vanquished the dreaded Seattle Seahawks Sunday night, they did so in front of a local television audience nearly twelve times larger than the Emmy Awards opposite the game.
The Packers earned a 52.7 rating for NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV (Channel 4), or the equivalent of 470,716 television homes. The Emmy Awards on Fox affiliate WITI-TV (Channel 6) earned a 4.7 rating or the equivalent of 41,980 television homes. A rating point is the equivalent of 8,932 TV homes.
The Emmy ratings peaked at 8.0 at 7 p.m. during host Andy Samberg’s opening skit (watch it below) and thirty minutes before the start of the game. The Packer game peaked about half time with a 57.2 rating.
