Fewer People Say They’ll Watch The Super Bowl This Year

You’d think the Super Bowl would be BIGGER this year than last, now that we have vaccines and a game that DOESN’T feature Tom Brady. But that might not be the case.

According to a Lending Tree study, expected spending on the Super Bowl is down 19% – from $108 per person to $88.

28% of people claim they don’t plan to tune in, which is UP from 21% last year.

In a separate survey, just 20% of Americans say they plan to attend a Super Bowl party this year.

But those who do go to a party will consume a LOT of calories.

According to one estimate, the average person will scarf down more than 8,000 calories.

The usual suspects include: Chicken wings, potato chips, pizza, dip, and of course beer.

96.4 million people watched the Super Bowl last year, which was down 3.5% from the previous year.

More people are STREAMING the game though, 5.7 million people were streaming last year, which was up 69% from 2020.
