We’ll get several ratings reports throughout the day measuring last night’s Super Bowl on Fox. But according to Nielsen metered market ratings, Pittsburgh’s Fox 53 led all local markets with a 57.9 rating / 78 share of audience for last night’s stunning come-from-behind Patriots win over the Falcons.
Viewers in Buffalo, watching on Fox 29, had the second-most interest in the game with a 57.2 rating / 78 share. Atlanta’s Fox 5 averaged (57.0/82) followed by Norfolk (55.9/75), Richmond (55.7/73), and Milwaukee (54.8/75).
Providence (54.6/78) and Boston (54.3/81), the two markets that consider the Patriots the hometown team, came in 7th and 8th among the 56 largest U.S. markets. Indianapolis (54.1/75) and Minneapolis (54.0/78) rounded out the top 10.
Nationally, Super Bowl LI delivered a 48.8/72 metered market household rating/share, up 3 percent over the last Super Bowl on FOX, 2014’s Seattle Seahawks-Denver Broncos championship.
