Super Bowl scores fewest TV viewers since 2009

Last Night's Super Bowl Ratings Were the Lowest in Eight Years

The marquee event of the television calendar, which saw the Philadelphia Eagles top the New England Patriots 41-33 for their first Super Bowl victory, averaged 103.4 million viewers.

The viewership on NBC, which is owned by Comcast Corp, ranked as the lowest for US television's premiere event since 2009.

As always, the Super Bowl will finish as the top-rated TV program of the year, and the broadcast ranks 10th on the list of most-watched U.S. TV broadcasts of all time. Fans ripped out a number of seats after the final Vikings game at the Metrodome in 2013.

It is the biggest sporting event in the USA and brands pull out all the stops while advertising in the Super Bowl. Super Bowl 52 is the first National Football League championship game since 2009 to fall behind that episode in the rankings. Fans also watched a record 633.7 million live-streaming minutes of the game.

Advertisers including Anheuser Busch InBev, Amazon.com Inc and Toyota Motor Corp spent more than $5 million on average for each 30-second commercial spot during Sunday's game.

Preliminary ratings show NBC posted a Nielsen household 47.4 rating/70 share, down 3% from a year ago.

Nearly all the Western New York audience stayed Sunday for Justin Timberlake's halftime performance. That gives it the lowest TV viewership of any Super Bowl since 2009, when 98.7 million people watched the Steelers defeat the Cardinals.
