Record 123 million watched Super Bowl on CBS



(The Hill) – An average of 123 million people watched Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, accounting for the largest audience of any telecast in history.

The Kansas City Chiefs victory over the San Francisco 49ers earned 123.4 million average viewers across all platforms, including the CBS Television Network, Paramount+, Nickelodeon, Univision, and CBS Sports, Univision and NFL digital properties, including NFL+.

CBS said Monday night’s figures are based on Nielsen Fast National data and Adobe Analytics.

This year’s game breaks the previous record set by last year’s Super Bowl which brought in 115 million viewers on Fox.

A total of 120.0 million viewers watched the game on CBS, the largest audience in history for a single network, while the network said it was the most-streamed Super Bowl in history, led by a record-setting audience on Paramount+, though it did not provide streaming numbers.

The network estimated some 200 million viewers watched all or part of Sunday’s game, marking the highest total audience in history, a figure that was also up 10 percent from last year’s game.

Buzz around this year’s Super Bowl was particularly large, given the high-profile romantic relationship between Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and pop megastar Taylor Swift.

Advertisements for Sunday’s game were running upwards of a reported $7 Million for a 30 second spot, also a record.
