Garnering over 112 million viewers, this year’s Super Bowl LVI has taken the top spot for the most-watched Super Bowl event in five years. The showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals saw a star-studded takeover at the SoFi Stadium and around the globe, overtaking the match between New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons that saw the Pats win 34-28 in overtime.
In a statement to the Independent, NBCUniveral’s chairman Mark Lazarus said, “The Super Bowl once again delivered a massive audience, which included NBC and the unmatched power of broadcast television as well as first-ever presentations on Peacock and Telemundo, and led into our most-watched Olympics coverage in four years.”
This year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show was widely considered as one of the top performances of all time. Led by hip-hop icon Dr. Dre, who performed alongside, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent, many have called the show a generational triumph, grasping the attention of Boomers, Millennials and Gen Zs.
