The NFL's television viewership dominance in the United States is showing no signs of slowing down.

NFL games accounted for 82 of the 100 most-watched U.S. TV broadcasts of 2022, according to a report by Anthony Crupi of Sportico. That number is up from the previous year, when the NFL had 75 of the top 100 broadcasts.

The most-watched NFL game was Super Bowl LVI between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals, which brought in 99.2 million viewers. The NFC Championship Game was second with 50.2 million viewers, followed by the AFC Championship Game with 47.9 million viewers.

The only non-NFL broadcast to land in the top 15 was President Joe Biden's State of the Union address, which ranked seventh on the list with 38.2 million viewers.
