Super Bowl Ratings Could Be Off the Charts, Eyeing A Record Above 115 Million Thanks to Taylor Swift and Friends


Last night’s Super Bowl game is going to be a record breaker, we know that.

The record now is 115 million total viewers for last years Chiefs-Eagles game. That was also the first time the Chiefs won the Super Bowl.

Last night the Chiefs made history by beating the 49ers for two wins in a row.

The game was great and exactly what the network wanted, with a cliffhanger first half and a nail biter second half. Going into overtime, for only the second time ever, added to the drama.

Plus, there was so much entertainment value: Usher on stage with Alicia Keys and HER, Reba McEntire and Post Malone at the opening, and then all the celebrities in the stands. Taylor Swift brought Blake Lively and Ice Spice, stars like Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, and Leonardo Di Caprio were in the boxes. So much to look at!

And then of course Beyonce surprised everyone and stole the show by releasing a pair of singles announced during a Verizon commercial! This morning the songs are number 1 and 2 on iTunes.

SO hang on…early ratings should be in starting around 12 noon…
