CBS SPORTS’ COVERAGE OF Super Bowl XLVII IS WATCHED IN ALL-OR-PART BY RECORD 164.1 MILLION VIEWERS

The CBS Television Network’s coverage of Super Bowl XLVII featuring the BALTIMORE RAVENS’ 34-31 win over the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers’ on Sunday, Feb 3 (6:32-8:41 and 9:11-10:47 PM, ET) was watched in all-or-part* by a record 164.1 million viewers, up 3% from last year’s 159.2 million for Super Bowl XLVI (N.Y. Giants-New England).

 

Last night’s 164.1 million (Persons 2+) is the highest number of viewers to ever watch all-or-part of the Super Bowl. The previous high was 2011’s 162.9 million for the Green Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers game.

 

*(watched at least six minutes of the telecast)

    This was the number that I was waiting for the other one is just the average. This is the real number here. So this easily makes it the most watched Super Bowl of all-time to beat that 162.9 million from the game in 2011. I thought that would be impossible to beat.

    Game Total Viewers
    Super Bowl XLVI (Giants-Patriots), 2/5/12 166.8 million

    NOT 162.9

    I think 166.8 million might be the real number for last year. I think this number usually develops on Tuesday or Wednesday as their probably still counting the actual number of eyes watching the game.

  • Winning C.

    That probably means this game is around 168 or 169

    @Romo: sadly, I cannot, but I’ll see if I can find anything out. The only thing I can guess is last year NBC went with “watched at least 1 minute” and CBS went with watched at least *6* minutes.
