The Ratings Are In: Lady Gaga & Super Bowl 51 Deliver ‘Monster’ Numbers!

Published: Monday 6th Feb 2017 by Rashad

With aerial acrobatics and vocal displays that seemed to fly just as high, fresh reports now reveal that Lady Gaga‘s kick ass Super Bowl halftime showing wasn’t the only thing that soared last night.  That’s right, preliminary figures are indicating viewership did as well!

Placing her and the Patriots v. Falcons among the “most watched ever,” tuck in below to see just how many people were glued to their screens when Gaga belted ‘Bad Romance’ and the Pats delivered a stunning, historic upset:

Pure Viewership = 111.3 million

Via Deadline:

…the Fox broadcast of the Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons gridiron NFL battle at NRG Stadium in Houston on Sunday is one of the top four most watched TV shows in American history – tied with the 2012 Super Bowl. About 111.3 million tuned in to Fox for the 6:45 – 10:30 PM ET Super Bowl last night, according to Nielsen.

When viewership on Fox Deportes and Fox Sports GO are added in, the total rises to 113.7 million – the second best multi-platform Super Bowl result in this multi-platform era.

 

That’s right!  Gaga has tied her longtime nemesis, Madonna, for fourth place amongst “most watched Super Bowl” showings ever (pure viewership).  Curious to know who’s above them?  Here’s the list:

Most Watched Super Bowls

  1. 2015 (starring Katy Perry)
  2. 2014 (starring Bruno Mars)
  3. 2016 (starring Coldplay/Bruno Mars/Beyonce)
  4. 2012 & 2017 (starring Madonna & Lady Gaga respectively)

Keep it locked to That Grape Juice for reports on how well the actual halftime show fared by its lonesome (a figure that is usually different from the overall Super Bowl).

    Excellent ratings considering so many trump supporters boycotted the performance!!!

    • BIGGESTAALIYAHFAN February 6, 2017

      That’s pretty ironic….lol. I tiohht she did a great job, but I do feel like she was missing something. Great job none the less. Wish she performed “Love Game”

    • Anne February 6, 2017

      True, but just because more people saw it doesn’t mean more people liked or enjoyed it. For example, Prince is not on this list and his show is widely considered the best of all time.

  2. Truthtea February 6, 2017

    It wasn’t anything groundbreaking. I wonder why the camera cut away as she “dropped” off the roof onto the stage? If it was real, they would’ve shown the full effect. Overall, it was just another average Gaga performance aside from the part where she tried to emulate P!nk’s Cirque du Soleil act.

      • The Wig Snatcher February 6, 2017

        Clocked!

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 6, 2017

        Wow! I feel bamboozled lol

      • LMAO February 6, 2017

        LMAO ONLY A DUMBASH BUG WOULD THINK SHE ACTUALLY JUMPED OFF THE ROOF FOR REAL LMAO.

        KEEP REACHING INSECTS LMAO.

    • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

      it was better than Madonna and katy perry’s and I love them both. just give credit where it’s due. you’re jealous.

      • FAF February 6, 2017

        Why would she jump off a roof are y’all dumb?

    • LMAO February 6, 2017

      LMAO KEEP SEETHING BUGS. GAGA SLAYED AND YALL JUST…CANT….TAKE….IT…..LMAO.

  3. Max February 6, 2017

    She’s tied with Madonna lol I doubt the M stans are happy about that

  4. Max February 6, 2017

    Anyways congrats to her she put on a good show was it memorable no but it was good for that moment

  5. Mark111 /.\ February 6, 2017

    So a dip in views. Save the “It depends on the team” because this game was hyped with one of the best team in football history. People turned the channel during her performance. Still higher than Beyonce’s show tho.

    • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

      I just realised how pathetic rihanna is. I doubt she can put on a performance like gaga’s or even beyonce. it’s amazing how far spreading your legs can take you. Rihanna deserves nothing of what she’s given. To think her fans even mocked gaga’s sales. what a shameless and disgraceful artist she is.

      • Mark111 /.\ February 6, 2017

        Rihanna has nothing to do with the topic. For a so called flop, she always seem to be on your mind all the time. So you can go deflect from Gags having ratings dip somewhere else on your own time.

      • LMAO February 6, 2017

        LMAO RIHANNA GOT YOU SO PRESSED THAT YOURE SEETHING OVER HER IN A GAGA POST LMAO. NOW THATS WHAT U CALL PATHETIC LMAO.

    • JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

      Mark your logic seems to fail when the results are showing that the actual game lost viewers. So Gaga made the Haltime Show stay pretty much on par with previous years despite the drop for the game. Make her look even better.

    • blue February 6, 2017

      actually people didnt turn in for the game but more turned in for her performance…read!

      • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

        lol as if rihanna can command an audience like that. just who the f*** is rihanna without jayz, those songwriters, produsers, cute outfits and magazine covers??? a nobody. shes has no substance, is empty and shallow. She needs to go.

      • blue February 6, 2017

        did you say rihanna or beyonce?

    • Lana Del Fan February 6, 2017

      Y’all STAYYY bringing Beyoncé in a conversation. That’s why she’s queen. Even with less SB views, she has the most likes on Instagram and more followers than Gaga. Even with less YouTube views that Gaga, Beyoncé sells more records at $20 an album. Without a number one, she had a whole stadium tour that’s about to be relaunched. Do you understand what I’m trying to say? Numbers don’t mean anything. Beyoncé next album could sell Ciara numbers and shed STILL be one of the most instrumental artists in the industry. So stop bringing up the queen in order to raise Gaga. Gaga had a cute performance. Leave it at that.

      • LMAO February 6, 2017

        LMAO KEEP SEETHING WITH YOUR EXCUSES BANDWAGON BUG. BUGYONCE AT THE SB IS A FORGOTTEN DEAL NO MATTER HOW MANY KISSA*SS RATIONALIZING THAT YOU DO. WHY DONT YOU SPEND TIME SEARCHING FOR LANA’S CAREER INSTEAD OF D*CKRIDING BUGYONCE LMAO.

    • FAF February 6, 2017

      A dip in views when she’s singing about LGBT and multi races and she protested trump no s*** Sherlock

  6. oopsUPsideDaHead February 6, 2017

    WoW

    Good for Gaga, but still trying to understand that last jump. LOL

  7. Beygency February 6, 2017

    She didn’t beat Bey her show still remains the most watched and best overall

    • AmericanHeartbreaker February 6, 2017

      Beyoncé was not even on the list. Gaga’s show was more watched.
      Beyoncé was only more watched last year, when she was only a supporting act to Coldplay’s amazing show 😉 Period.

      • blue February 6, 2017

        lets not forget that while gaga actually improved the game’s audience, bey lost 2million viewers

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 6, 2017

        @blue
        if this post was about #1 singles and not the halftime show performance we might have asked you for your opinion

      • blue February 6, 2017

        when you give your farts so freely i thought they were taking any and all opinions…

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 6, 2017

        …then stop thinking. You’re making an ass outta yourself.

      • blue February 6, 2017

        make me!

      • blue February 6, 2017

        oh wait…screen blocked!!!! lol!

    • blue February 6, 2017

      she actually did…look at the list of the 4 most watched SB halftime shows. she also got the most tweets

    • Beygency February 6, 2017

      Girl please Bey had the more superior,had more views,quality,guest surprises and shock factor. Hers will forever remain iconic even more iconic than Mj and you will deal

      • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

        Gaga’s was just as great and i liked her setlist. i like beyonce but she needs new hot music. Her songs aren’t exciting. The songs gaga performed were nice to listen to once again

      • blue February 6, 2017

        lol… i get it now, you are trolling as a hive member! lol funny

      • JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

        Beygency
        You are not being a good advocator. With your own logic we could say Beyonce did less than Gaga despite the support of guests, something Gaga didn´t have for the first time in years in this show. Gaga killed it. Not that Beyonce didn´t. But give Gaga the props she deserves.

      • Jamon February 6, 2017

        Beyonce and Bruno weren’t the headline. People didn’t know they were showing up. Funny TGJ added their names but didn’t add the guess for testing other shows, i.e. Katy Perry/Missy Elliott. I liked Gaga performance. You can’t please everyone, so of course she’ll get some hate.

      • LMAO February 6, 2017

        LMAO ANOTHER SEETHING INSECT. BUGYONCE ISNT EVEN IN THE TOP 5, AND YOU WILL DEAL LMAO.

      • oopsUPsideDaHead February 6, 2017

        More iconic than MJ … HE CREATED THIS FORMAT
        and he didn’t have to dress like BEYONCE

    • FAF February 6, 2017

      u clearly didn’t read the article

      That’s Coldplay not Beyoncé show

      • Jamon February 6, 2017

        Exactly. TGJ shouldn’t have added their names.

  8. blue February 6, 2017

    those are great numbers as the game’s viewership dropped

    • JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

      Those numbers dropped? Oh now this is great news for her Halftime show then that she pretty much made it stay on par with previous years.

  9. Lisa February 6, 2017

    Good for her I read somewhere that she hadn’t more viewers than the actual game

  10. UPGRADEBOY February 6, 2017

    Now lets hope it helps her to have a big grossing tour

  11. Lake Erie February 6, 2017

    Damn Gaga!!! Big ups!!

  12. Swiftie February 6, 2017

    She couldn’t even beat basic Perry despite being the one with more talent!??
    But atleast she beat Basicyonce but then again it’s not that hard to beat her?

  13. Swit Katz February 6, 2017

    Congrats Gaga iam now a fan. I wonder why rihanna gets more praise than gaga. That prostitute can’t perform she’s a bore. No wonder her tour flopped it’s obvious some of her fans came to their senses.

    • JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

      Where the hell does Rihanna get more praise?????? 🙂 She doesn´t and she shouldn´t.

      • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

        People act like she’s the biggest pop star bcoz of her number 1 singles.

      • blue February 6, 2017

        2nd highest selling female artist in history!!!!!

        what has your fav done with their lives?

      • JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

        Highest what? LMAO Are you confusing Rihanna with Celine Dion? Maybe Mariah Carey? Whitney?… 🙂

      • blue February 6, 2017

        love those ladies but no…rihanna is the 2nd highest selling female artist in history…your denial cant change facts

    • blue February 6, 2017

      2nd highest selling female artist in history!!!!!
      what has your fav done with their lives?

      • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

        Those numbers are lies and anyone can achieve that if they chose to be a s**** bank in return for favors. All those hits but she can only perform 3 songs. Stfu!!!

      • blue February 6, 2017

        you know whats more sad then my fav apparently exchanging s** for record sales? its yours doing the same but cant even crack the top 10 of that list!

      • Swit Katz February 6, 2017

        Luckily more people want to watch them live. what ws your fave’s tour numbers btw???? kii…. even bieber almost doubled her tour gross and you want to brag. number 1 hits with low tour sales… omfg

  14. Swit Katz February 6, 2017

    I just hope next era will mark the continuous decline of rihanna. I hate that b**** so much I just want her to disappear. She’s a thief and a fraud who’s blocking real talents from shining.

      • FAF February 6, 2017

        Well considering she had to partner with a phone service to get her album to platinum I’d say she’s halfway there

  15. JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

    So Beyonce´s Halftime show is below all those? Surprising.
    Although as the unbiased music fan that I am, I know damn well these ratings don´t depend on the group that is performing that night (same way the success of an animated movie doesn´t depend on which singer lent their voice to a particular character no matter how stans want to state it does). It has more to do with the game itself. Overall, they have all achieved pretty much the same ratings these last 5 years. Kudos to all of them. Performing that long segment is exhausting, especially if you sing live and dance LOL

    • blue February 6, 2017

      first of all: only a handful of those acts were able to increase on the game’s viewership, gaga was one of those madonna, mj and katy perry did it too…bey for example had 2million dropped from the game’s viewership, so to some degree those acts do bring in their own viewers to offset those sports fans not there for the halftime show.

      second of all: when you give your time to promote a movie, you deserve some of the credit especially when that movie over-performs and becomes a hit and becomes the single reason a whole animation movie studio can look forward to a future.

      third: go F yourself

      • nik February 6, 2017

        Beyonce S.B halftime – 110.8
        The show itself: Super Bowl XLVII was viewed by an estimated average of 108.69 million people in the United States, with a record 164.1 million tuning into at least six minutes of the game.

        It doesn’t matter ? You are really dumb lol

      • blue February 6, 2017

        it doesnt matter cause if the game is already in the top 4 of the most watch and she improved those numbers it means her place in the top 4 is secured! #logic

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler February 6, 2017

        It’s the most watched game period you idiot.

    That’s great for Gaga!!! Who had the most ratings doesn’t mean they had the best show y’all are really childish….. Katy has more views than MJ enough said lol grow up damn

    • JOHNVIDAL February 6, 2017

      That´s true LOL Katy has the record for the most lipped basic mess where only the theatrics and Missy Elliot shone 🙂 And I agree the ratings don´t depend on the artist selected that particular year. So i think I agree on everything with you.

      • blue February 6, 2017

        then what do you attribute to acts whose halftime shows get the same numbers as the game itself? or those whose numbers actually fall?

        or the fact that gaga’s show was the most tweeted about?
        or that she is enjoying on of the biggest boost on itunes?

        thats all just sport fans right?

    • blue February 6, 2017

      and yet nobody made that assumption but you. gaga’s super bowl in top 4 of most watched super bowls… nobody equate that to quality…insecure much?

  21. The MoreYouKnow February 6, 2017

    Madonna actually had 114 million and the 1st ever to have more viewrship than the actual game at that time. So she isn’t tied at all with Lady GaGa. “Madonna’s halftime show was viewed by an average of 114 million viewers, which makes it the most watched Super Bowl halftime show ever. The game itself peaked between 9:30-9:58 p.m. (ET) with an average of 117.7 million viewers.” Here’s the link: http://www.sbnation.com/2012-super-bowl/2012/2/6/2775693/super-bowl-viewership-record-madonna-halftime-show

    • The MoreYouKnow February 6, 2017

      OOps…my bad. You guys are referring to the actual viewership for the game not the Halftime show.

  23. Nate February 6, 2017

    Im bitter they just didnt ask Missy Elliot to perform a full show, since she single-handedly made Katy P’s performance watchable. Bring out Missy!!

  24. Mark111 /.\ February 6, 2017

    Beyonce had the lowest rating Halftime show this decade. She also have the lowest rating HBO concert as well. Clearly Bey is weak when it comes to ratings. You pest can be upset, you can bring up other singers or just be p1ssed, but the FACT remains that Beyonce’s halftime is the lowest of 2010’s.

    • MsYonce February 6, 2017

      And it’s still ones of the best of all time both of her performances. Her performances are still ranked above All the others this decade as one of the best and you can stay mad about it. Y’all still arguing bout the same old s*** lool

    • King B February 6, 2017

      It’s okay. As long as the people willing to spend 17.99 on her album as well as those expensive tour tickets. Bey remains unbothered when she constantly had her catalogue albums charting and just last year alone she had 150k++ catalogue album sales and 2 Mil catalogue single sales . We have some artist that had 10,000 number one singles but couldn’t have not even 1 out of 7 previous releases to chart again. (streams included), let alone goes platinum with recent releases.

    • iamdiego February 6, 2017

      Yall act like ppl pull in 110 million viewers every day. Beyonce is not bothered. She didn’t even have new music out. She was one of the first to pull off a whole world tour without new music, while filming 16 music videos at the same damn time. One of the first to put out a successful surprise album released on a Friday (Friday f****** 13th) and still be #1 by Sunday night (crushed Tuesday releases that had a full week of sales) with no singles released prior. This is why your favs album comes out on friday’s now. This why your favs want to perform at the superbowl and announce tours immediately after performing with a commercial (those spots aint cheap). Your favs will never perform at halftime twice (2 yrs apart) or even once. Would you prefer Impact or ratings? A sold out STADIUM TOUR or highest rated HBO special? Platinum #1 singles that cost $1.29 or Multi Platinum # 1 albums that cost damn near $20. Beyonce doesn’t even have to work as hard as your favs. She might show up to 1-2 award shows a yr, She’s doesn’t even do interviews with anyone. Beyonce Is the standard of what an entertainer is.

  25. Mase February 6, 2017

    Congrats Gaga you deserve it all. Talent always wins.

  26. Black power February 6, 2017

    Y’all need to update they updated her numbers!!! She had the 2nd most watched with 117 mill

  27. King B February 6, 2017

    LOL. You guys can cling to ratings. It clearly did nothing to sales considering Bey sold more tickets and grossed more compare to Bruno and Katy with less dates. And guess who constantly had more catalogue albums charting without the Superbowl effects? Yes. Just last week, 4/6 Bey’s albums are charting.

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

    Katys crown is untouched and her wig is unmoved.
