Buying a TV to watch the ‘Skins on Sunday?

An estimated 30.3 million people turned on their televisions to watch the Redskins trounce the Cowboys last Sunday.

It was the most-watched and highest-rated NFL regular-season primetime game ever on NBC and the most-watched NFL regular prime-time game on any network in 16 years.

This Sunday, the ’Skins will square off against the Seahawks at 4:30 p.m. in their first playoff game since 2000, and it’s a sure bet that even more of us will be glued to the screen to see the outcome.

Will you be watching it on the same TV set you had back when the Redskins beat the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl 25 years ago? Or will you be shopping for a brand new HDTV before Sunday’s game?

Either way, please send me an email at I’ll be writing a story about TV sales for this weekend and would love your input.

I’d also like to know what size TV readers either plan to buy or will be using to watch the game. Please take the poll below. Thanks!
