The numbers are in and the Superbowl ratings for Sunday were the lowest in eight years…
According to Deadline.com:
Deadline reports that numbers for the 2018 Super Bowl fell 3 percent over last year’s game. And although it was the sixth-highest-rated Super Bowl ever, numbers were down 5 percent from the last time NBC aired the football championship in 2015, when the Patriots met up with Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks.
When it’s all said and done, Super Bowl LII is currently the lowest rated since Super Bowl XLIV in 2010, when the New Orleans Saints beat the crap out of the Indianapolis Colts on CBS.
As it now stands, the Patriots’ winning Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 currently holds the title of most watched ever, with 114.4 million viewers.
In better news for NBC, the highly hyped episode of This Is Us was the highest-rated episode so far.
