CBS considering Super Bowl LIII pregame interview with Donald Trump

CBS considering Super Bowl LIII pregame interview with Donald Trump CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus indicated Thursday that the network is exploring the possibility of arranging a sit-down interview with President Donald Trump as part of its pregame coverage of Super Bowl LIII. The Chicago Tribune’s Matt Bonesteel reports that CBS has engaged in talks with the White House about a potential Trump interview, but McManus stated there will be “no announcement on that right now.” Trump was not interviewed by NBC for the network’s pregame coverage of Super Bowl LII last year. Instead, the President sat down for a taped interview with Bill O’Reilly that was aired during FOX News’ coverage of the game.

The Super Bowl is the annual American football game that determines the champion of the National Football League (NFL). The game culminates a season that begins in the previous calendar year

Last year ’s Super Bowl , which saw the Patriots stage a huge comeback to beat the Falcons in overtime, drew an average of 111.3 million viewers Still, Super Bowl LII attracted the fewest viewers since 98.7 million watched the Steelers edge the Cardinals in 2009 . The NFL’s regular season games

CBS did not get a great Super Bowl on Sunday night. On Monday morning, network executives woke up to a 10-year low in early TV ratings.

That’s also not great, but rest assured everyone, Super Bowl LIII will still be the highest-rated TV telecast of 2019. Super Bowl LIII got a 44.9 rating in the metered markets, a 5.3 percent letdown from last year. Last year’s Philadelphia Eagles’ victory over the New England Patriots scored a 47.4 overnight rating/70 share in the 56 metered markets.

While it was a great game and that’s a big number, its own metered market returns were down 2.8 percent from the prior Super Bowl.

Super Bowl LIII was an American football game between the three-time defending American Football Conference (AFC) champion New England Patriots and the National Football Conference (NFC)

Overnight ratings reveal that Sunday’s Super Bowl saw a 3 percent ratings drop compared to last year . NBC garnered a 47.4 overnight Super Bowl LII’s early ratings numbers were up 9 percent from 2005, which was the last time the Patriots and Eagles faced off in the NFL championship game.

Immediately following the Super Bowl, CBS’ series debut of global talent competition “The World’s Best” bowed to a 14.0 overnight rating. That was down 13.6 percent from “This Is Us” in 2018, which posted a 16.2 for the killing off of Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia).

We’ll get fast national ratings for the broadcast nets around 8 a.m. PT. Those won’t be super-helpful, however, as they’re not adjusted for time zone differences.

CBS has ordered fast-official ratings from Nielsen, which we will get not too long after. Read all about Sunday’s on-field action here. The low-scoring affair should help explain the year over year TV tune-out.
