Sunday’s NFL conference championship games resulted in massive ratings for CBS and Fox after they both went to overtime.
CBS’s prime-time coverage of the New England Patriots v Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship game averaged 53.9 million viewers, peaking with 63.8 million viewers.
It was the most-watched conference title game in five years and up 27 per cent from the 42.3 million who watched the 2018 NFC Championship game in prime-time on Fox last year.
The Los Angeles Rams’ victory over the New Orleans Saints to claim the NFC Championship averaged 44,075,000 viewers on Fox, peaking at 54,057,000 viewers as Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein won the game with a 57-yard field goal.
The two-game average of just under 49 million viewers is the highest in three years.
