Instead, the Who Dat Nation spent their time partying in various 'boycott bowl' celebrations throughout the state.  The Nielson Company is reporting that Super Bowl ratings in the New Orleans-area dropped by half this year.  Last year, the city drew a 53 rating, but after a 'non-call' in the NFC Championship Game cost the Saints a Super Bowl birth, ratings plummeted to 26.2  During the regular season, New Orleans had the highest ratings of football viewing in the country.

Overall, it was the lowest rated Super Bowl in a decade.
