This shouldn’t be too shocking, given the amount of points that were scored all night long. An estimated 100 million viewers watched the Patriots defeat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in the Super Bowl from Atlanta, which the lowest ratings the big game has seen since 2009.
The Super Bowl overnight ratings are in and the early early returns are not looking good for CBS at all.
According to the Sports Business Journal, CBS received a 44.9 overnight rating for the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history.
Six out of every 10 people with televisions in Boston watched Sunday’s game, while Los Angeles came in at a 44.6 rating, good for that city’s best Super Bowl rating since 1996.
