super bowl neither a ratings hit nor bust ...

Post by tmcats » February 3rd, 2020, 3:53 pm

The Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers had a larger audience than last year's big game, but the number of viewers was still down from other recent years.

Sunday's game drew an average just below 100 million viewers and a 41.7 household rating from Fox's broadcast, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Those numbers are a slight bump from last year's Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, which aired on CBS and saw 98.2 million viewers and a household rating of 41.1.

Both Super Bowl audiences received small bumps when also factoring in additional platforms on which the games could be streamed. However, this is the second straight year that the primary broadcast failed to eclipse the 100 million viewers mark, which comes after the league had nine straight Super Bowls topping that marker.

I wonder if which network it’s on causes any of the viewing results? While we watched the game, not many of us care for Buck and Aikman.

Just wonder if a Nance/Romo broadcast crew on CBS would have changed the numbers at all?

Turned the TV sound off and listened to Kevin Harlan and Kurt Warner on Westwood One. In Texas, so Mitch was not an option.
