One would expect yesterday's Thanksgiving extravaganza between the Bills and Cowboys to have rated well. Thanksgiving viewership is always high, and the Cowboys are the NFL's biggest draw by a significant margin. Nonetheless, the numbers released by CBS are quite high:
To put into context how many viewers this is is, it would have ranked as the 5th highest total of any TV program in 2018; last year on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys had 30.5 million viewers for their game against the Skins.
It's fascinating to think about how high this number could/would have gotten if the game had been closer late.
