Remember when people thought the NFL was in trouble with their television ratings and viewership? That was funny.
89 of the top-100 most watched TV programs in 2018 were live sporting events.
The NFL produced 64 of the top-100, according to TheBigLead. The numbers reveal that NFL games took the top-7 spots, with Super Bowl LII (Eagles-Patriots) leading the way.
