CTV's coverage of the NFL Wild Card Weekend attracted major audiences on the march toward Super Bowl XLVIII. Overnight data from BBM Canada confirms that an average audience of 1.6 million Canadians watched the San Francisco 49ers' thrilling victory over the Green Bay Packers, winning Sunday for CTV as the #1 program among all key adult and male demos. It was the fourth most-watched wild card playoff game since CTV began airing NFL games in 2007. The audience peaked late in the fourth quarter with more than 2.4 million viewers as the 49ers kicked a last-second field goal to defeat the NFC North champion Packers.
