“The game (6:31-10:25 p.m. ET) averaged 103.4 million viewers on NBC…” the network stated, adding 2 million users tuned in via NBC Sports Digital. Those numbers put the game behind the next-lowest game in recent Super Bowl history, 2010’s which saw 106.5 million viewers.

Many conservative viewers celebrated the low numbers, which they attributed to calls for a boycott ahead of the game due to the NFL’s refusal to take action against players who kneel during the national anthem.

I’m interested in seeing tomorrows ratings for tonights Super Bowl. How low will the numbers be from viewers who choose to boycott tonight’s game I wonder?..🤔

Proud to be one of millions who will NOT be watching the and who will be contributing to all-time low ratings!

Others had called for fans to boycott the broadcast after it became known that the Super Bowl rejected a program ad from a veteran’s group that read “Please Stand.”

The ratings came in the lowest watched superbowl since 2010. And these were big market teams. Down 3% from last year and thats about 3.6 million people. Not to mention the merchandise thats not selling. 3% of 111 Million is alot of people

I hope you won’t make a ‘COMPROMISE’ when it comes to Adam Schiff like yo did with the SUPERBOWL. I kept my promise not to ‘WATCH THE SUPERBOWL’ – Its like you CONGRATULATED @nflcommish for his … OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR over our FLAG, NATIONAL ATHEM, and our VETERANS.

Still, the network boasted the ratings as a win.

“With an all-time Top 10 audience, the Super Bowl once again proved that it’s the most dominant and consistent property on television,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBC Broadcasting & Sports. “Super Bowl LII delivered for all of our partners, and provided us with the unique opportunity to give America a look ahead at the Olympic Winter Games, which begin live on NBC this Thursday night.”

NBC added the audience made the list of top 10 programs in television history, behind the “MASH” finale in 1983.
