Did You Know…17

According to the Nielsen ratings, more women watched the Super Bowl on NBC than those that tuned in to the Oscars (24.5 million), the Grammys (23.8 million), and the Emmys (8 million).

    • In 5 years, the Super Bowl female audience has doubled.
    • The last 3 Super Bowls were the most watched by females, setting unprecedented records.
    • “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, has snagged the title of being the first series to finish No. 1 in ‘prime time’ last year. Women between the ages of 18 to 49 years of age, brought a No. 4 ranking to the weekly football telecast.
    • The introduction of sport jerseys for women, is one major effort being made by the league to draw in the female audience.
    • Football has become synonymous with “hot” celebrity news and pop culture. New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez’s recent romance with Hollywood actress Eva Longoria, has drawn as much interest and attention within the gossip world as the sports columns. Quarterback Tom Brady married supermodel Gisele Bundchen after his notorious relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan and the birth of their child out of wedlock.
    • The game of football certainly has not escaped the tabloid fascination and intrigue and has in many cases, become a soap opera of the ‘sports’ kind.

***I will admit that the only time I feel inspired to tune into a football game is during the playoffs leading up to the “Big Game”. Then of course, I tune into the Super Bowl, especially if my son’s Denver Broncos are playing. It’s exciting and and so nice to be abreast on what’s happening in such a popular and broadly watched arena. So much excitement and hoopla! It would seem very difficult to not tune into an event that everyone seems to be watching!
