Payam Javan: Super Bowl LVIII, featuring the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers, became the most-watched Super Bowl ever, attracting a staggering 123.4 million viewers across TV and streaming platforms. This marks a significant increase from last year’s record-breaking 115.1 million viewers.
The viewership includes audiences on CBS, Nickelodeon, streaming services like Paramount+ and NFL+, but excludes those watching in public spaces like bars and restaurants. Final Nielsen data will be released tomorrow, potentially pushing the number even higher.
This phenomenal viewership underscores the enduring popularity of the Super Bowl as a cultural event, drawing in millions of fans for an exciting competition and the surrounding halftime show and commercials.
