Super Bowl LV ratings: Worst since 2007

By CNBC - February 10, 2021

The numbers are in, and the National Football League’s biggest game of the year — during this season of Covid — failed to top 100 million viewers this year.


Super Bowl LV attracted 96.4 million viewers for ViacomCBS on Sunday, the company announced Tuesday, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9. It’s the lowest watched Super Bowl since 2007, when the Indianapolis Colts played the Chicago Bears, another CBS broadcast. That game attracted 93.1 million viewers, according to Octagon’s media division data provided to CNBC.

This marks the second time in three years the game failed to eclipse 100 million TV viewers. The 2015 game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks remains the most watched game with roughly 114 million viewers.
