Redskins Draw Largest Preseason Audience Ever

The Redskins celebrated their 16-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in front of the largest preseason crowd in team history.  Between the simulcast on Comcast SportsNet and WRC-TV (NBC 4), the team attracted 16.3 percent of households in the area.  The previous record was 15.1 percent against the Baltimore Ravens last year, so this was a significant improvement.

The other indicator of ratings is the percentage of televisions in use that were tuned in to the game.  The Redskins attracted about one-third of all TV-watchers that night (30 percent), which tied the previous record.

The team also reached major demographics at record rates as well.  For men ages 18-to-49, 11.9 percent tuned in, as well as 12.9 percent of men 25-to-54.

Couple this with the Redskins 359th consecutive sellout of FedExField, and a lot of fans are excited to see what this team can do.  Regardless of whether fans came out to the stadium or enjoyed it at home, football is officially back in the Nation’s Capital.

The next Redskins broadcast will be this Friday, Aug. 19. against the Colts on the road in Indianapolis.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet and NBC 4.
