Whether you’re watching the 2018 Super Bowl because you’re a diehard sports fan, or because you’re just trying to get to This is Us after it’s over, there’s one crucial fact you may have forgotten to look up. What time does the Super Bowl end!? So if you’re a fan, you know when the most stressful day of the year is finally over and you can either properly celebrate or mourn. And if you’re just in it for the snacks, commercials, and big TV shows that air after, you know when you actually have to start paying attention to your screen.

So in case you don’t know: the Super Bowl runs until approximately 10 PM EST.

For those of you too busy snackin’ or drinkin’ or cheerin’ to google on the West Coast, that’s 7 P.M. Pacific. Of course, if it ends up being a particularly tight game and runs long, which could def happen, it might not end at 10 P.M. on the dot. So if you do have somewhere to be or something to watch after the Super Bowl, you should def keep an eye on the clock and not rely on its end time to hit at 10 P.M. or 7 P.M. on the dot.

Despite the expected run time, the Super Bowl on average ends about seven minutes after the hour.

If you don’t have anything to do or anywhere to be after the Super Bowl ends, we also recommend taking note of the run time so you can space out your Super Bowl snacking schedule appropriately. This is a marathon, not a sprint, people; let’s all plan accordingly.
