Saints-Dolphins game outdraws Super Bowl in New Orleans

Local Nielsen overnight ratings for the New Orleans Saints comeback victory over the Miami Dolphins delivered a Jeremy Shockey stiff-arm to the gold standard of TV-audience measurement.

Sunday’s (October 25) game drew more viewers in New Orleans than the past two Super Bowls, usually the most-watched TV event of the year.
According to numbers released by WVUE-Channel 8, Sunday’s game had a 49.3 average rating and a 70 average share.
Rating is the percentage of viewership among the market’s total TV households (about 634,000). Share is the percentage of viewership among sets in use.
The 2009 Super Bowl: 45.7 rating/63 share.
The 2008 Super Bowl: 47.2/67.
Nielsen local overnights don’t count out-of-home viewing – bars, dorm rooms, fishing camps, etc. – where even more fans no doubt monitored the game.

The way N.O. is playing I expect a lot more viewers to tune in to watch the Saints. Move over Dallas we are Americas team.

Re: Saints-Dolphins game outdraws Super Bowl in New Orleans

You know, this is great news to me, especially with a capless season looming in 2010. The more tickets sold, and the better the ratings, the more likely to attract free agents. Not to mention winning games. But this adds to the draw. I heard there is a mile long waiting list for season tickets now. Is that true?
