Justin Timberlake’s Halftime Show Averaged A Higher Rating Than The Super Bowl Game

The Super Bowl saw its lowest ratings since 2010.

The Super Bowl saw its lowest ratings since 2010.

This is the part where America drags Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl performance and blames him for the big game’s weak ratings, but more people tuned in on average to watch JT’s Halftime Show than see the actual game. By the way, I hear the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41 to 33.

Super Bowl LII secured a 47.4 overnight rating, Yahoo! Sports reports. That’s a 3 percent dip from the 2017’s Super Bowl game, which pulled a 48.8 in early numbers. A 3% decline isn’t substantial, but it’s an eight-year low in household viewership. Really, it’s not a big deal.

Deadline has a detailed report on all of the numbers but I’m not convinced any of it matters.

What do you need to know? The Super Bowl LII was not a ratings disaster, more people tuned into watching JT perform than the game on average and lots of money was made.

No Gaga no ratings.
