Although Sunday's down-to-the-wire game was one of the most exciting Super Bowls, it didn't get a super rating. Fox's telecast of the New England Patriots' 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams got a 40.4 national rating and a 61 share, the same numbers as last year's game on CBS, in which the Baltimore Ravens routed the New York Giants, 34-7. Nationally, only the 1999 Super Bowl, with a 40.2 on Fox, and the 1992 game, with a 40.3 on CBS, drew lower ratings than Sunday's game.

Networks sell advertising time based principally on their performance among key demographic groups, which vary based on the time of day. Ratings performance in these categories gives a rough indication of network revenues in the given period, though profitability can vary based on programming costs and other factors.

CBS got a 17.0 rating and a 28 share Friday night for its first live prime-time coverage of the opening ceremony, according to a fast national rating released by the network Saturday. That is 18.7% lower than the 20.9 rating CBS got at Lillehammer in 1994 and 17.2% higher than from Albertville in 1992. Both of those ceremonies were shown on taped delay on Saturday nights, traditionally the lowest-rated night of television.
