Ratings For The Super Bowl Were Down From Last Year

By 02.03.14

Turns out, a record-setting number of people didn’t want to watch a game that was practically over midway through the second quarter: according to Deadline, the pre-show for Prince on New Girl, a.k.a. the Super Bowl, “[scored] a 34.4/67…in the 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. slot. That’s down 13% among adults 18-49 from last year’s Super Bowl XLVII on CBS.” What the hell does any of that mean?

Super Bowl XLVIII earned the game’s fifth-best overnight rating of all-time, despite Sunday’s contest being the worst blowout since 1993. The game earned a 47.6 rating, 70 share in the 56 metered markets, according to the very early metric. That number represents a one percent decrease from last year’s 48.1/71 for Ravens vs. 49ers on CBS, and also the lowest in four years, since 2010′s Saints vs. Colts matchup resulted in a 46.4/68.
