Football is political and politics is entertainment. What's there to be excited about?

Not a Giants or Pats fan but I am surprised the ratings did not get higher:

Who says Nielsen didn't get its numbers wrong. That rating system is not infallible. Anyway, who cares how many people viewed the Super Bowl, give or take a million fans.

It's probably not the first time and probably won't be the last and while the Giants be the Patriots by 21 points, any game were both teams remained under 20 pints for a long period of time can be hard to watch.
