Super Bowl LIV drew an average viewership of 102 million people Sunday night. An average of 99.9 million people watched the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers on Fox, and a little over two million people saw the game with Fox Deportes and streaming devices.

Super Bowl viewership increased for the first time in five years. Viewership was up 1.4% from the broadcast of Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams. An average of 98.19 million people tuned in to CBS (100.7 million viewers including ESPN Deportes and streaming) for the lowest-scoring game in Super Bowl history a year ago.

The Super Bowl rating of 41.6 is up from the 2019 rating of 41.1. Sunday’s contest became the 10th most-watched game in history. 

More people watched the 2015 Super Bowl than any other contest in NFL history. An average of 114.4 million viewers watched the Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks on NBC in arguably the greatest Super Bowl of all time.

Television viewership dropped to 111.86 million people in 2016 and 111.32 million in 2017. The 2018 Super Bowl between the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles saw a sizeable decrease in viewership when 103.39 million people saw the game on CBS.  

Every Super Bowl since 2010 has totaled over 100 million viewers between television and streaming numbers. No fewer than 106.48 million people watched the Super Bowl on TV from 2010-2017, according to Sports Media Watch.

The 2020 Super Bowl was competitive for almost all 60 minutes. No team ever held a lead larger than 11 points.

Kansas City came back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, scoring touchdowns with 6:13 and 2:44 left in regulation. The Chiefs put the game away with Damien Williams’ 38-yard touchdown run with 72 seconds remaining. 

Patrick Mahomes won the Super Bowl LIV MVP award.
