Giants, 49ers, Ravens and Patriots Generate Monster TV Ratings on Conference Championship Sunday

The NFL overnight ratings are in, and Giants-49ers drew a 33.4 rating and an estimated 57 million viewers, which trumped last year’s Packers-Bears snoozer (30.0 rating).

Patriots-Ravens didn’t fare quite as well, pulling in 29.1 overnight, which was down a bit from last year’s Jets/Steelers tilt (31.4).

The final numbers aren’t in yet, but the NFL flacks are already touting the 53 million viewers this as the “most-watched Conference Championship Sunday in 30 years.”
