AFC Title Game Breaks Record; NFC Is Most-Viewed in 29 Years

Almost 55 million people saw the New York Jets lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday’s AFC Championship game. CBS’s broadcast posted a 28.3 fast-national rating and had 54.850 million viewers.

Although it was the most-viewed AFC title game ever, it was only the highest-rated one since the 1996-1997 season when the matchup between the New England Patriots and the Jacksonville Jaguars earned a 28.5 on NBC. Additionally, the game was actually down eight percent in ratings and five percent in viewership from last year’s game in the same timeslot, Fox’s Minnesota Vikings-New Orleans Saints NFC title match.

U.S. Soccer Star Is Bored, Checks in With The NYT From China

The United States women’s soccer team is currently in the middle of the Four Nations tournament in China. The squad opened up with a surprising loss to Sweden before defeating Canada 2-1. They play the home country on Tuesday morning, but the players have a lot of downtime. Unfortunately, as midfielder Yael Averbuch writes in The New York Times, that’s not as distracting as it usually can be.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube – basically anything fun – is blocked. We’ve also discovered that topics or historical events that may be controversial to the country are blocked from Google. My roommate, Lauren Cheney, and I have made a game of seeing what is and isn’t prohibited. These are the things we found to do in our spare time, especially on game day.

Soccer players: They’re just like us! (Bored in China.)
