Programming note: Tune into 49ers Central tonight at 7pm for the latest on the 49ers leading up to Sunday’s NFC Championship in Atlanta, only on Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area.

Just under 31 million people, 30.9 million to be exact, tuned in to FOX to watch the 49ers' 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers Saturday night, according to the NFL and the Nielsen Company.

The Patriots-Texans contest drew 37.7 million viewers, Ravens-Broncos had 35.3 million viewers, and Seahawks-Falcons had the third largest viewership of the four divisional-round matchups with 32.1 million viewers.

Since the Summer Olympics, seven NFL games have accounted for the only programs on television to reach 30 million viewers: the four aforementioned divisional playoff games, two Wild Card playoff games, and the final Sunday Night Football game on NBC between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins.
