Beyonce Halftime Show & Super Bowl 2013 Ratings Down

The ratings and viewership scores for the 2013 Super Bowl are in and while it is the third-most watched program in television history, the ratings are down from last year.

Beyonce‘s halftime show earned a 48.2/71 rating, which means 48.2% of all televisions in the nation were tuned in to the show while 71% of all people actually watching TV during the show were viewing the program.

The halftime show ratings are down just slightly from Madonna‘s show last year, which earned a 48.1/72 rating.

The Super Bowl’s overall rating was 46.3/69 and an average of 108.41 million people tuned in for the game.

The post-Super Bowl broadcast of Elementary, which started later than any other post-game show due to the power outage, earned 20.8 million viewers, a high for the freshman series.

    It just drives me crazy how Beyonce goes on about black women this and black that… She is never seen without her fake WHITE HAIR wigs .. Blond wigs at that, and her skin colour as gotten lighter and lighter throughout the years, and she never mentions her nose job she did to thin it… Rihanna has a very wide nose , you don’t she her getting , nose jobs after nose jobs to make it look less black…. And sorry without the WHITE blood in Beyonce’s DNA she wouldn’t be who she is looks wise.

    Madonna >>> Beyonce

    All the single ladies looked like hookers. Is that what America wants? A high profile stripper disguised as a singer?

    Ratings were down because there was no popular football player to root for such as Tom Brady, RG III, Payton nor classic team like Dallas or NY Jets.

    Sorry Says:

    Michael Jackson and Prince were the best ever. They are true performers. MJ set the stage for all of them.

    jane Says:

    Hate all you want losers. Beyonce did so good and she is proud to be Black no matter what the white losers think she wants to be- she is always supporting her black people, you go KingBey, keep slaying them hoes, we all know that their non talented pop asses cant go further than you. Madonna’s tired of all better? are you guys CRAZY???!!! Madona cant freaking hold a note to save her life, she is a pop ***** who uses sex and autotune to dtay relevant, and most of her fans are gays or white trash clowns. She has NOTHING on a soulful woman like Bey.

    ali Says:

    performance felt strained and repetitive to me, but it is not an easy show to do. even Madonna said it was one of the hardest shows she’s ever done. Beyonce looked beautiful, but the hair swinging, hip jolting got old after a bit.

    Sorry folks but the halftime show was lousy, I could not get one word from her songs and there are many people who agree with this on many of the sports blogs

    @jane: How on earth can u say Madonna uses sexuality when Beyonce did nothing but act like she was riding a p.p. almost the entire performance. You can’t just make things up because she is black…and thanks for the derogatory remarks against gays and white people. You are by far someone no one should know.

    Ava Says:

    Remember Madonna is 20 years older then Beyonce…. And besides throwing her weave around making faces and grunting , Beyonce show sucked, and she had no new rountines or songs, Madonna’s was way better with way less hype.

    Gary Says:

    Oh, by the way jane….nice comment about Madonna using auto tune when Beyonce lip synced at the presidential inauguration, nice way to disrespect our president. Madonna is and always will be the biggest female artist of all time…call in when Beyonce has 2 of the highest grossing tours of all time in the top 10 (per pollstar and billboard), until then go back into your homophobic, racist crib and leave the rest of the world alone.

    THe super bowl perfomraces had its good and Bad. Yes Beyonce is a great entertainer. The sad part is she and others were dressed like hookers. Im sorry but the Super Bwol is being watch by millions of FAMILYs. That incldues kids. How do you go from singing with kids to a strip show? Really. Most of the commercials were based around sex. There hasnt been a good Half Time for years. Madonna isnt any better. Actualy to me was worse. I would rather watch a marcching band.
