Looks like Rex and the Jets have really made an impression. The Jets/Pats game had the highest rating for CBS since it started broadcasting the NFL again in 1998. Here's the AP article posted on Yahoo:
NEW YORK (AP)—Sunday’s national game on CBS, mainly Patriots-Jets, earned its highest preliminary rating for its first broadcast of the season since the network resumed televising the NFL in 1998.
New York’s 28-14 win helped draw a 16.7 overnight rating and 32 share. CBS said Monday that the rating was up 8 percent from last year.
Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight rating measure the country’s largest markets.
So are the Jets now America's Team? For the land of the free and the home of the JETS!!!
