Although this game was highly viewed, CBS experienced great success all postseason.
For each game, they averaged 40.798 million viewers, which was the leader among all other networks.
Simply put, the NFL continues to reach millions of viewers and is not showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Will the Super Bowl break records of its own this season as well?
To date, the most viewed Super Bowl was in 2015, when over 114 million viewers tuned into the game.
That Super Bowl was between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.
As many NFL fans may remember, this was the season that the Patriots intercepted Russell Wilson on the goal line, which turned out to be one of the most memorable plays in Super Bowl history.
While the Patriots will not be playing in the Super Bowl this season, the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles have extremely dedicated fanbases.
This has the makings to break a viewership record, considering both teams’ followings.
This is the Chiefs’ third Super Bowl appearance in the last five seasons, while the Eagles haven’t been in this game since they won in the 2017 season.
The next two weeks should provide lots of drama leading up to the big game.NEXT: Panthers Analyst Has A Surprise 2023 QB Plan In Mind
