The Taylor Swift Effect is a real thing. Don’t believe me? Well, yesterday’s Super Bowl was watched by over 120 million people on CBS. That makes it the most-watched telecast in television history on a single network.

Here is the breakdown that CBS Sports sent out in a press release:

RECORD-SETTING VIEWERSHIP

  • Super Bowl LVIII is the most-watched program ever, averaging 123.4 million viewers across all platforms, up +7% vs. last year’s Super Bowl which was the previous record (115.1 million).

  • More than 200 million viewers (202.4) watched all or part of Super Bowl LVIII across networks, the highest unduplicated total audience in history and up +10% vs. last year’s Super Bowl (184 million).

CBS LEADS THE WAY WITH LARGEST AUDIENCE EVER FOR SINGLE NETWORK

    • Super Bowl LVIII on CBS led the way with 120.0 million viewers, the largest audience in history for a single network.

    • Super Bowl LVIII capped off a record-setting season for CBS Sports. The NFL ON CBS scored the most-watched regular season since the NFL returned to CBS in 1998 as well as the Network’s best postseason viewership since 1998.

Those numbers are astounding. And CBS needs to pay Swift a bonus because she is a large part of those numbers. Cause let’s be real. The people who helped to break that record were not tuning in to watch the Kansas Chiefs play the San Fransisco 49ers or Usher. They were tuning in for the singer!

I watch the big game every year for the commercials. Others watch for the actual game. And some for the halftime show. However, yesterday, first-timers were checking out because she introduced them to a game that their fathers watched.

And that is amazing! Swift is bringing families together! My friendship bracelet is off to her.

UPDATE: Tracker starring Justin Hartley, which aired after the game, scored a touchdown with 18.4 million viewers and is expected to gain another 7 million by its next episode on Sunday.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert was seen by 3.74 people.

And finally, CBS took the cake with this spin. @fter Midnight scored its most-watched episode ever with 2.03 million viewers. Why is that such a hard sell? The show has only been on since January 16th, and it airs at 12:35a. So it ain’t ever going to see those numbers again.

Have you been so obsessed with Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s relationship that you wish you had dolls like the couple to play with? Well, Mattel Creations got you covered!

In honor of the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl win, they are selling a Barbie, who looks like the singer, dressed like the winning team, and a Little People set which includes a Jason Kelce figurine.

You can preorder the Barbie and Little People set for $30 each between now and February 25th. However, you are going to have to wait until August to get them. By then, Swift could be writing breakup songs about the football player.

Taylor Swift won her 13th Grammy tonight for Best Pop Vocal Album, and she made a little announcement during her acceptance speech. She will be releasing her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, on April 19th.

This record has been in the works for two years, and I am sure it is going to sell like crazy! What of her’s doesn’t?

And I am sure it will dominate the Grammys next year!

West Wing explained how Taylor Swift can make the Super Bowl in time

Taylor Swift will be performing in Tokyo on February 10th, and the Super Bowl is in Las Vegas on the 11th. So how is she going to make it to the football game on time to watch her boyfriend, Travis Kelce’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, play the San Fransisco 49ers?

Tokyo is 17 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time, and a nonstop flight is 11 hours and 35 minutes.

So, if the concert starts at 6p and is over at 10p, she can be on a flight at midnight and arrive in Vegas around 6:30p on the 10th. Therefore, giving her more than enough to be well-rested in time for the game which starts at 3:30p PST on the 11th.

Doesn’t make sense? Listen to the cast of West Wing explain it in 2001. However, it might be more confusing because they are three hours ahead of the City of Sin. Although, these days, DC is more sinful than Vegas.

United Airlines goes Traylor for flights to the Super Bowl
January 29th, 2024 under Super Bowl, Taylor Swift. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Fransisco 49ers made it to the Super Bowl on February 11th in Las Vegas.

So, United Airlines added some direct flights in honor of the players and one of the players’ girlfriends.

There are three flights leaving MCI, aka Kansas City, Missouri, and they are UA 1989 as if I need to explain that, UA 2287 in honor of Taylor Swift’s song and Travis Kelce’s jersey #, and finally US 1587 for Patrick Mahomes and Kelce.

I wonder how many people are going to try to get on UA !989! More than will get on the SF to Vegas flights UA 1995 and UA 1849. I am not going to research why those numbers are significant. All I care about are the Traylor ones!

Oh, and the singer won’t be on any of those flights. That is because she will most likely be doing a private flight from Tokyo to make it to the game in time. She has a concert in Japan on the 9th
