Super Bowl LVIII becomes most-watched TV program in US history

Super Bowl LVIII became the most-watched TV program in US history with an incredible 123.4 million viewers tuning in to Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers.

The NFL’s climax shattered the previous year’s renewal when the Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles, which reached a mark of 115.1 million.

Nielsen and Adobe Analytics revealed a 7% increase in viewership in 2024 as Kansas City landed their third championship ring since the turn of the decade.

The official broadcasters were CBS, Nickelodeon and Univision, whilst the game also streamed live on Paramount+ and the NFL’s digital platforms.

123.4 million was the average number of viewers throughout Sunday’s clash, but a record 202.4 million watched at least some of the game across all networks.

This marked a 10% jump from last year’s figure of 183.6 million, in large part thanks to Taylor Swift‘s involvement as girlfriend of star Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
