The Patriots’ 33-6 loss the 49ers Sunday might have been hard to watch for local fans, but a large national audience tuned in to watch it on CBS.
The broadcast, which aired in the national 4:25 p.m. window, was the most-watched television program of the week, drawing an average of 22.896 million viewers.
That was up 8 percent over the Week 7 broadcast in that window on CBS last year (Chargers-Titans).
In the Boston market, Patriots-Niners drew a 27.4 rating and 49 share on Ch. 4.
The Patriots will face the Bills next, at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The game will air on CBS.
