The NFL capped off their controversial 2019 season with the Super Bowl.
League executives counted on the big game to distract from the league’s many scandals.
But the NFL just got the really bad news it was dreading.
The Super Bowl is traditionally the highest rated TV show of the year.
Over 100 million Americans usually tune in.
However, this year the Super Bowl matchup between the Rams and the Patriots saw ratings sink to a 10 year low.
However, when it comes to ratings, Super Bowl LIII is not one anyone’s going to want to brag about. Shown on CBS for the first time since 2016 and with ad spots going for around $5 million each, the Rams’ loss scored a 44.9/68 in metered market results.
To put that in the starkest light of day, that’s a dip of more than 5% from Super Bowl LII February 4, 2018 on NBC in the first round of ratings. On a larger playing field and amidst a call for a boycott of the game due to the league’s “racist” treatment of Colin Kaepernick, Sunday’s metered market result is the worst the Super Bowl has done in the early numbers since the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals on February 1, 2009.
A tight and seamlessly flowing offering from the network, yesterday’s Super Bowl also is down a bit more than 8% from the metered markets of the last time CBS had the game three years ago. That game, Super Bowl 50, saw the Denver Broncos top the Carolina Panthers 24-10 on February 7, 2016 in a gridiron clash that eventually resulted in 111.9 million viewers and the honor at the time of being the third most-watched show in U.S. TV history.
The low rating is no surprise.
Fans are turned off by America-hating players that protest the flag.
The league also turned the event into a festival for left-wing social justice issues.
On the pregame show they discussed income inequality and criminal justice reform.
The league invited radical socialist Congressman John Lewis to midfield for the coin toss.
And the commercials featured brands promoting kooky environmental issues, radical feminism, and the idea America is ruled a racist white elite that won’t give up power.
If you vote for the Democrat Party, then the game was made for you.
For everyone else living in real America, it was time to find something else to watch.
