The first TV ratings for Super Bowl 50 have been released.
“The first number for Super Bowl 50, based on Nielsen’s metered markets, is a 49 rating and a massive 73 share among households. That’s just off from last year’s 49.7 rating. The 2015 overnight rating marked an all-time high for the Super Bowl, ultimately translating to an average 114.4 million viewers. It topped the previous year’s game (111.5 million viewers) to become the most-watched telecast in U.S. TV history.
Working against Super Bowl 50 was the fact that it was a relatively low-scoring game. Quarterback Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos ultimately topped the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in a pairing that was not nearly as year prior.” [READ MORE]
