Final Ratings: Lady Gaga’s #SB51 Halftime Show Scored 4 Million More Viewers Than Game Itself

Published: Monday 6th Feb 2017 by Rashad

Just when you thought Lady Gaga fans didn’t have enough reason to rejoice reports indicate Mother Monster has given her faithful followers yet another reason to put their paws up!

Earlier today we reported preliminary figures that indicated the game itself (Patriots v. Falcons) had amassed a whopping 113 million viewers (across all formats) over its historic course.  Those figures, however, did not include the then unknown spike or decline in viewership during the halftime show.  In fact, it wasn’t until Madonna’s epic touchdown of a halftime show in 2012 that the viewership during the halftime show saw increase.


Well, if the final ratings reports are to be believed, it looks like Gaga has kept that new tradition alive in a big way.  Tuck in to see how many tuned in to see her crank out hits ‘Just Dance,’ ‘Telephone,’ and more:

Via Deadline:

‘…it seems Lady Gaga also came very close to breaking a record with her halftime show.

Reaching back into her extensive catalog, the Grammy winner and American Horror Story actress snared 117.5 million viewers on Fox for her 13-minute performance at NRG Stadium in Houston…’

That handsome figure places Gaga at #2 of “most viewed Super Bowl halftime shows’ of all time.  Former rival Katy Perry still remains #1 with a viewership of 120.7 million (across all formats).

    Yesssssssssss Gaga!!!!!!!! You deserve this!!!!! And she’s performing at the Grammys this Sunday too!!!!

    • JOHNVIDAL February 7, 2017

      What? I didn´t expect her to perform at the grammys this year. Every single big event keeps on constantly wanting her there 🙂

  5. Slayty is Chained to the Rhythm February 6, 2017

    Katy’s is still the most watched in history. Her wig is unmoved.

    In other news, Katy’s new single was announced and she’s coming to scalp once again. Pop is about to get interesting again now that amateur hour is up. The Queen of the Charts returns!

    • Belladonna February 7, 2017

      I can’t f*cking wait!!!!!!!! It’s going to be epic!!!!!Yesssss!!!!!!

      • JOHNVIDAL February 7, 2017

        She did. She increased the ratings. Katy didn´t. Not to mention the actual display of talent… 🙂

    • SMH February 7, 2017

      Lol please nobody is scared or worried about basic ass katy perry. And her SB performance is only remembered because of Missy Elliott so….

  6. Jay February 6, 2017

    Still was a boring performance 🙁

  7. Slayty is Chained to the Rhythm February 6, 2017

    Chained to the Rhythm featuring Skip Marley is coming this Friday with a debut performance a the Grammys. The Queen is not playing around. Im predicting a debut at #1

    • Fancy BISH February 7, 2017

      That song better be payola’d DOWN or Ed Sheeran will block her like H&R lol

  8. Truthtea February 6, 2017

    It was more lit last year!

  9. King B February 6, 2017

    Good for her. I actually like it. Well deserved. Plus she really needs it to revive her career, good job Joanne! I like her toned down image rather than the pretentious, attention seeking Gaga.

  10. Mark111 /.\ February 6, 2017

    Beyonce stans are SHOOK! lol

    • Jay February 6, 2017

      Shook over views? I think not cuz her performance wasnt nothin memorable. It was lackluster she couldve done better .. wont be in the Top 5 superbowl performances of all time list i tell ya that much!

      • blue February 6, 2017

        top 2 of the most watched though… and she did amazingly so she will def make the list of top 10 of best sbhs

    • blue February 6, 2017

      i never get their insecurity, bey is great! why cant just be proud at what their fav’s SB performance and congratulate gaga at her success.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

        Why do you always feel the need to speak on Beyonce’s performance? IF Rihanna ever has the opppurtunity to book the SB stage then we’ll ask you for your opinion. Until then,your input is INVALID .

      • King B February 7, 2017

        I never get it, why does the Navy loves mentioning Beyoncé? Does she bothers you that much? She had 108 Mil viewers not 460 viewers, it wasn’t that bad!

      • blue February 7, 2017

        you are one to talk when your fav actually lost viewers during her performance! people actually turned off their tv’s when she got on!

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

        Youre one to talked when your fave has NEVER even performed at the Superbowl. She couldn’t even slay the VMA’s let alone the halftime show

      • blue February 7, 2017

        which vma?
        the one where she and drake had the most talked about moment?
        the one where she received the highest honour of the night?
        or is that the one where all her performances where praised?

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

        Her cameo with drake was more talked about than all 4 of her tired ass performances. She’s not a good performer nor has she ever been!

      • blue February 7, 2017

        her cameo drake was more talked about then bey’s hour long attempt to upstage rihanna, what’s your point? does that make bey a bad performer too?

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

      How’s the AUNTI tour doing ? I heard that there were plenty of seats left.

      • King B February 7, 2017

        No. If Katy and Bruno can perform before Rih, I’m sure JB and Taylor can perform before her as well. By the way, did you know that Lemonade was the 25th Best Selling International Releases in South Korea according to Gaon Charts? Joanne, Glory and Here made it to the top 100 with 700-800 copies sold, guess which of the ‘global superstar’ didn’t made into the list? Hint : She was often called The Black Madonna due to her ‘globalness’ as well as P!nk’s bad girl inspired image with her ‘the most anticipated album of 2016’.

      • blue February 7, 2017

        you might be right, and both in and taytay will have a bigger audience than bey too

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

        When will Frih tho? Speaking of TayTay she’ll most likely be asked to perform at the SB before her. Even Justin Beiber has a better chance!

      • blue February 7, 2017

        2million people either turned off their tv’s or changed channels when your fav got on the stage! 2million! weren’t interested! 2million people! breath it in, accept it and now deal!

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

        The entire Navy should have had boost mobile purchase tickets for all of those empty seats on Rihanna’s tour. That is all!

    • SMH February 7, 2017

      Lol typical. beyonce gets bested and her fans resort to attacking Rihanna to make themselves feel better. Mess lmao.

  11. blue February 6, 2017

    imagine if the game’s viewership was on par with last years or increased from it….!

  12. Mase February 6, 2017


  13. oopsUPsideDaHead February 7, 2017

    Why do Bey stans hate to see her friends have success?

    selfish A S S fans

  14. MARY February 7, 2017

    Congrats.. White Artist will always higher numbers.. America is only 14 percent black.. Got it Beyonce Fans. Beyonce was great and Gaga was Great Simple

    Janet is My favorite.. GO WATCH IT..

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

      Man f*** white America #BlackLivesMatter ✊✊✊

      • King B February 7, 2017

        I’m not American, but a lot of comments on Facebook or whatever articles are throwing shade at Bey for her statement last year but praise Gaga cuz she toned it down.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

        Let the haters hate!

      • King B February 7, 2017

        It did nothing to her sales, hahahah. Plus, she can move to Europe, they love her, just look at her UK sales. Australia isn’t that bad too, 34 weeks charting while some global act couldn’t even stay until 20 weeks.

    • Beyonnaise February 7, 2017

      Based on that logic Beyonnaise only has black fans and Gaga only has white fans?

      The Excuses…

  15. LB February 7, 2017

    I thought Beyonce had the highest rated half time show ever, oh well another ratings flop in her book. She makes bad TV

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 7, 2017

      No,Styled to Rock was “bad tv”.

      • LOL February 7, 2017


  16. Beyonnaise February 7, 2017

    1. Gaga is over anyway

    2. Beyonka is trash and so is her ugly daughter s*** ivy

    • therealist February 7, 2017

      Now that’s a big no no to talk about a child. I understand everybody has an opinion, but kids are innocent. With that being said. You kiss blues a***SSS Muthaf***ka, and suck on a d*** and choke B****!!!! And for the record you and your mom probably look like f****** trolls in the face. have several seat /_ /_ /_ lmao2x

  17. #TeamTinashe Stan February 7, 2017

    Congrats Gaga! 😉

  18. mr.m February 7, 2017

    GO GAGA! Her performance was siiick
    lol beyonce could never
    She’s a tv rating flop
    both her HBO n super bowl flopped hard
    that proves how her hype n surprising factor is the only thing that helped her selling albums lately.

  19. Jeans February 7, 2017

    Please let this be the last article about SB. Bring janet for 2018!

  20. LOL February 7, 2017


  21. JOHNVIDAL February 7, 2017

    LOL WOW I´m loving this era. Proving again and again naysayers wrong. So she basically is the most successful Halftiem performer of the last 7 years along with Madonna???? That´s huge. The two that made the ratings for the game in their respective years increase. Huge win. Not that the rating prove who is better or isn´t. But we could all see she killed it. First time in years the whole thing was sung LIVE. And now this news about the numbers: total win. Same way against all odds she sold almost 200k copies first week despite the tremendous change of direction when every single hater was anticipating 100k copies max 🙂
