Super Bowl Ratings: Mahomes, Rihanna Lead Broadcast to 112.1 Million, Third Highest Broadcast Ever


The Super Bowl was a hit.

The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles scored the third biggest audience in TV history.

A total of 112.1 million people tuned in to watch the game, not to mention Rihanna’s half time show.

That’s within a whisker of last year’s ratings, when 112.3 million people watched the Los Angeles Rams win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Advertisers were certainly satisfied, and Rihanna’s records are now clogging the charts. So it all worked out for everyone, except the Eagles, who thought they’d win.

There’s always next year!
