Not only was last night’s game the least-watched Super Bowl in recent history from a local standpoint, but it was also one of the least-watched Super Bowls nationally in a decade.
According to NOLA.com , overnight Nielsen ratings showed that the game, broadcast on CBS, earned a 26.2 rating in New Orleans. That means just more than a quarter of TV-equipped households in the metro region were tuned in to the game.
(Each ratings point represents 6,331 New Orleans households, approximately 1 percent of the local viewing market.)
