Super Bowl XLVI Ratings

Just like Super Bowl XLV, Super Bowl XLVI became the most viewed Super Bowl in NFL history as well as the most watched program in US television history. It had an average viewership of 111.3 million viewers, 300,000 than last year, and one must also note that the halftime show featuring Madonna was seen by even more people than the game, something rare, with a 114 million average viewership and a 47.4 rating. The rating for the game itself was 47.0 with a 71 share, making it the highest rated Super Bowl since XX featuring the Chicago Bears and the New England Patriots. The thrilling game also set a total viewership record of 166.8 million viewers, beating last year's game which had 162.9 million viewers.
