That’s right — more women watched the Super Bowl than total people watched the Oscars.
If you looked at some of the sexist or “debased” ads that appeared during the Super Bowl, you might think that women would be turned off from the broadcast. But as we’ve reported before, women are far more interested in watching football than is commonly perceived – Sunday Night Football is actually the third most popular primetime show among adult women.
