Super Bowl LVIII Breaks Records: Most-Watched Telecast in History, Leaves 140 Million Americans Baffled

Super Bowl LVIII breaks record for highest viewership in television history

In history, Super Bowl LVIII achieved great feats in various ways. But for the NFL, the most significant achievement was that it became the most-watched telecast ever. The league reported that an average of 123.4 million people watched the game across all platforms including CBS, Paramount+, Nickelodeon, Univision, and CBS Sports and NFL digital properties. This was a seven-percent increase over last year’s record of 115.1 million.

More than 200 million people watched at least some of the game, which saw the Chiefs win in overtime with a final score of 25-22. This achievement was remarkable but raises an intriguing question: With 340 million Americans as of this month, what were the other 140 million people doing during the Super Bowl?
