Most watched program in United States history according to ESPN news.  151.6 milion viewers.

Wow, I guess some watched to see us win, some watched to see us lose.

I thought last year's Super Bowl had more viewers? Or was that just a larger share?

more than the Beatles on Ed Sullivan?  i always thought that was the biggest TV event ever.  Regardless, last night's game was more entertaining...

Just heard on the local news that the Norfolk, VA viewing audience was the 2nd largest to watch the game, behind the Pittsburgh market. Yeah, baby! Hampton Roads/Tidewater VA LOVES the Steelers!!
