Broncos win earns best wild-card rating since '94

NEW YORK (AP) - The Tim Tebow-led Broncos' overtime victory over the Steelers earned the highest television rating for a wild-card game in 18 years.

Denver's 29-23 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday on CBS drew a 24.0 rating and 40 share. The network said Tuesday that was the best since a 24.1/48 for Kansas City-Miami in 1994.

The average of 42.4 million viewers was up 8 percent from last year's Packers-Eagles matchup in the same slot - a game that at the time was the highest-rated in the wild-card round in a dozen years.

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.
