Chiefs-Broncos game is a smash hit with TV ratings

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos Sunday Night Football game broke some TV ratings records.

Lots of national opinions will be formed about the Chiefs based on last night's game against the Broncos because the whole freakin' country was watching it.

More people watched Chiefs-Broncos than the last BCS National Championship game or Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

Here are some of the TV ratings records from last night, via NBC Sports PR:

  • 6th-highest Sunday NFL overnight in NBC primetime history
  • 2nd this season behind Peyton's return to Indy
  • Highest local primetime rating in 27 Years for Broncos in Denver;
  • Chiefs’ rating in Kansas City is the best in a decade

Top markets:

1. Denver, 52.0/75 – NBC SNF local-market record

2. Kansas City, 51.5/72 – NBC SNF local-market record

A rating (the first number) is what percentage of all TVs in the market are tuned into the game. A share (the second number) is what percentage of TVs in use are tuned into the game.
