23.7 Million Viewers Watched Tuesday Night Football

The final numbers are in and the first NFL Tuesday game since 1946 was a smash hit.

23.7 million viewers tuned in to see the Minnesota Vikings upset the Philadelphia Eagles, a 25 percent increase over last year’s Week 16 game (Dallas-Washington) and the fifth most-watched Sunday Night Football game this season and the sixth most-watched ever.

Of the 16 SNF games so far in 2010, 11 have surpassed 20 million viewers, the most in NBC’s five-year history. To put that number in comparison, SNF surpassed 20 million viewers a combined 13 times from 2006-2009.
