Super Bowl LVI delivered the game’s usual massive audience for NBC Sunday — and rebounded from multi-year lows last year.
The broadcast averaged 99.18 million viewers on NBC and an additional 1.91 million on Telemundo for an over-the-air tally of 101.09 million viewers. Multi-platform figures, including streaming on Peacock and other digital outlets, are still to come and are likely to add several million more viewers to the total.
The 99.18 million viewers for the NBC telecast is an 8 percent improvement over last year’s game, which brought in 91.63 million viewers on CBS and 96.4 million across all platforms (which may be an undercount due to Nielsen issues at the time). Super Bowl LV drew the smallest audience for the game since 2007.
