Interest in the Superbowl declines as its “wokeness” rises

From Joseph D’Hippolito at The Federalist:

Only 44.9 percent––the worst overnight ratings for the Super Bowl in 10 years––watched the Patriots’ 13-3 victory…

Those figures follow a five-year decline in viewership. Since the 2015 Super Bowl, which attracted a rating of 49.7 percent, overnight ratings have decreased every year. The difference in figures between this year and 2015 is 5.2 percent…

Political allegiances played a decisive role in the results. Among Republicans, unfavorable opinion of the NFL exceeded positive views by 18 percent. The opposite held true for Democrats, with positive assessments out-polling negative ones by 12 percent. More.

Reality check: I’d be interested to hear of cases where getting woke actually pays off. That is, cases where it is an answer to the firm’s problems instead of a symptom of decline that is respectable among progressives in the media and therefore earns the firm free publicity.
