Bowl on NBC http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-irv-smith-jr.-jersey , a 7 percent drop from last year that indicates that television’s biggest event may have peaked in popularity.
The Nielsen company said it’s the smallest Super Bowl audience on television since 2009 despite the underdog Philadelphia Eagles beating the New England Patriots in a thrilling game that was close from start to finish.
Last year’s Patriots-Falcons game reached 111.3 million viewers. The all-time Super Bowl record – and record for any television event in the United States – was the 114.4 million who watched the Patriots against the Seahawks in 2015.
The NFL’s viewership has been down this year, with experts citing factors like increased injuries, some confusing rules changes and anger at players protesting police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem. Similarly, fewer people have cable than they did a few years ago, with streaming onto hand-held devices becoming more popular.
The dip was also telegraphed by a poll conducted last week by Seton Hall University, which found that 54 percent of Americans were preparing to watch the game. That’s down from the 68 percent that said the same thing two years ago, according to the poll, which wasn’t done in 2017. The poll has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
Despite that prediction Alexander Mattison Jersey , the poll’s director said he thought the game’s quality would lift the numbers beyond what was actually seen.
”If you turned the game on at any time to say, `I wonder what’s going on,’ or a friend texted you to say you should watch this, you’re going to watch and get hooked,” said Rick Gentile, director of the poll, also sponsored by the Sharkey Institute.
NBC said that if you add in people who followed the game online, viewership increased to 106 million. And Nielsen said it has not yet counted the number of people who watched the game outside of homes – in a bar http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dru-samia-jersey , for instance. Some perspective: despite the decrease, Sunday’s game ranked as the 10th most-watched television even in U.S. history.
Soothing any hurt for NBC was Kantar Media’s estimate that $414 million was spent on advertising for the Super Bowl telecast. That’s second only to the $419 million spent last year, a figure that Kantar said exceeded 2018 only because last year’s game went into overtime, meaning there was more time to sell ads.
The network was able to remind millions of people that the Winter Olympics, which will also be televised by NBC, begin on Thursday.
Justin Timberlake’s halftime show, despite tepid reviews, drew an audience of 106.6 million people Daniel Jones Jersey , Nielsen said.
NBC’s post-game telecast of ”This is Us” was a winning choice. Nielsen said 27 million people stayed for the drama, the most-watched post-game entertainment show in six years and sharply above the 17.6 million people who watched the premiere of ”24: Legacy” on Fox last year.
And extra kibble is being handed out over at Animal Planet. The cable network’s annual ”Puppy Bowl” of cute animals, shown opposite NBC’s pregame show, reached 3.05 million people. That was the show’s biggest audience in its 14 years of existence.
This list is about “America’s Team.” No, not the Denver Broncos, we are talking about the “America’s real Team,” the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have a rich history in the National Football League, with the franchise winning five Super Bowls and reaching the big game eight times Maxx Crosby Jersey , a record they share only with the Pittsburgh Steelers. One can argue the Dallas Cowboys are the greatest franchise in the history of professional football. You don’t get the title of “America’s Team” if you’re not. However, a franchise is only as good as the players that play for it and to succeed as much as the Cowboys have it takes great players, not just good players.This list looks at the top 15 Cowboys of all time. The list consists of long tenured Cowboys, with players having to have played five or more seasons with the organization. Some of these players may not be anywhere near the top 15 in league history, but these players contributed a great amount to the Cowboys and helped them win numerous championships and games. However, most on the list are Super Bowl champions and tht does play a factor on how high they’re ranked. That doesn’t mean players without a ring didn’t make the cut, as career stats are also a big factor in there rank. Before we start, we’d like to apologize to Tony Romo http://www.raiderscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-isaiah-johnson-jersey , as Jason Witten isn’t the greatest Cowboy of all time, although he made the list and that should bring a smile to his face and maybe some Cowboys tickets my way… I guess that’s wishful thinking.
