New 16" battery expended in @ 2.5 hrs?!

At 5:30 I moved the computer to my sofa to watch Monday night football.  It had been plugged in for 2 days prior.  After about 2.5 hours the computer stopped and the battery showed only red when I tried to start it again.

Is this unusual?  I've watched movies on airplanes before and got much more life out of my 2012 15" retina (on the order of 5-6 hours) but in order to do so I turned down the screen considerably.  I did not turn down the screen tonight.
