That’s the second-largest viewing audience of a Super Bowl halftime show. Only Katy Perry had more. In 2015, 118.5 million watched Left Shark dance out-of-sync.
Five-million more tuned into Rihanna’s performance than the football game itself. An average of 113 million watched the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35.
Super Bowl 57 ranks third among total viewers. The 2017 New England Patriots historic comeback over the Atlanta Falcons and the last-minute interception by the Patriots over the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 drew larger audiences. All three games were decided in the final minute. (The Hollywood Reporter)
