Without Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, the ratings of the Super Bowl recorded a decline in Quebec.
Sunday night, the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs rallied 1,851,000 French-speaking Quebecers, according to preliminary Numeris data collected by Deep Blue Canada. This is a drop of 696,000 from the record reached last year, when 2,547,000 Quebecers followed the 49ers-Chiefs clash.
The 55e Super Bowl rallied 1,113,000 fans on RDS and 738,000 on CTV.
At the time of going to press, precise data for CBS and TSN, both less than 100,000, were not available.

Unsurprisingly, American football’s annual High Mass was the most-watched show on Sunday.
At Radio-Canada, Everybody talks about it mobilized 772,000 faithful. At VAT, 10 years of the Cheater brought together 760,000 people, against 604,000 for Big Brother Celebrity, in Noovo.
In the United States, a computer problem would prevent the firm Nielsen from counting the ratings of the Super Bowl, reports Deadline.
