It wasn’t just the Kansas City Chiefs Offense that bottomed out on Super Bowl Sunday, so did the ratings.

The game was supposed to be one for the ages, GOAT QB Tom Brady versus the rising star QB Patrick Mahomes. What’s even more remarkable is that Brady is traditionally a ratings booster, some of his playoffs games have broken ratings records.

Not this time.

“CBS averaged 91.629 million TV-only viewers for the Buccaneers’ blowout of the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, the game’s lowest TV viewership since ’06 when Steelers-Seahawks averaged 90.75 million on ABC. That figure is down from just over 100 million TV-only viewers for Chiefs-49ers last year,” Sports Business Daily reported.

The NFL ratings have suffered and many believe it’s because they have gone “woke.”
