Pro Bowl Went Up Against the Grammys and Drew 11.4 Million, the MLB All-Star Game Drew 11 Million

The NFL Pro Bowl, a rather pointless exhibition game that everyone strangely brags about not watching, miraculously managed to draw 11.4 million viewers on Sunday night while going up against the Grammys. Keep in mind, this is a football game that saw its top two highlights, by far, come before the game even started in fifth grade Andrew Luck and a horny Cameron Wake.

By comparison, MLB’s All-Star game this past July — the lively showdown that determines home field advantage in the World Series — drew 11 million viewers.

It’s a sad realization to know that even when the NFL is swinging like an inebriated Glass Joe, they’re still running the sports world with swift command.
