Traditional viewership ratings for this year’s Super Bowl plunged, however your faves Michael B. Jordan, Cardi B, and Drake made appearances in commercials for big brands. Get into their Super Bowl ads inside…

There were high hopes Super Bowl 55 would bring a competitive game: old school vs. new school as longtime vet Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went up against young, talented Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

However, the game didn’t deliver. The Chiefs played horribly, making it clear who would be this year’s winners earlier rather than later in the game. Folks just weren’t really watching it like that…well, in the traditional way.

After a delay in releasing the ratings, Nielson revealed the big game had a total audience of 96.4 million viewers on CBS along with a bundle of platforms and outlets, including CBS Sports and NFL digital properties, Buccaneers and Chiefs mobile properties, Verizon Media mobile properties and ESPN Deportes television and digital properties.

According to reports, ratings dropped 15% and total numbers were the lowest since 2006.

On the flip side, Super Bowl LV was the most live-streamed game in history, averaging 5.7 million viewers per minute, which was up 69% from 2020’s previous high. Also, the Super Bowl was still the most watched show of the past year.

So, you could look at it as the glass half full or half empty.

There was a lot of talk online about how boring the game was, but some of the Super Bowl commercials made up for it.

Michael B. Jordan fans got to see the sexy actor – who’s currently dating Lori Harvey – pop up in a Amazon commercial for Alexa…shirtless. Check it below:

And get this, MBJ’s commercial was reportedly the most viewed Super Bowl ad on YouTube AdBlitz Sunday night.
