The hysteria surrounding Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce continued on Sunday night when the pop superstar rocked up at MetLife Stadium to watch the Chiefs defeat the Jets.
Yet compared to last week’s game against the Bears, when Swift set the internet alight by watching Kelce play for the first time at Arrowhead, Kansas City’s television ratings dropped significantly this time around.
As first reported by TMZ, Sunday’s star-studded occasion in New Jersey somehow failed to live up to the astonishing NFL viewing figures of last Sunday, despite celebrity pals Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and more joining Swift in her suite at MetLife.
An estimated 20.31 million viewers tuned in to NBC to watch the Chiefs hold on for a nail-biting victory against the Jets, which still speaks volumes about the unique levels of interest this budding new relationship is drumming up.
However, that figure also works out as four million less than the 24.32 who watched Swift cheer on Kelce and the Chiefs against the Bears last week.
Taylor Swift’s latest appearance at a Chiefs game failed to generate the same level of interest
The win over Chicago was shown on a different network, nevertheless, after being screened on FOX. It also got underway at a more accessible time of 4:25pm compared to Sunday night’s 8:20pm start.
A number of diehard football fans took to social media to slam NBC over their coverage from MetLife, where the camera regularly cut away to shots of Swift and her A-list friends.
One wrote: ‘Please don’t play a Taylor Swift on your TV drinking game… you’ll be hospitalized, if you aren’t already.’
Another added: ‘These Taylor Swift cutaways during Chiefs games have got to go.’
