The 111.5 million show? Super Bowl XLVIII breaks all records

Published Add your comment

The fact that the Super Bowl XLVIII was one of the most lopsided games since the competition began had no effect on the T.V ratings it would seem.

In fact, Fox News has revealed that his year’s Bowl was the most watched T.V event his U.S history, eclipsing all other records before it.

A total of 111.5 million viewers tuned in to watch the Seattle Seahawks smash the Denver Broncos 43-8 on Sunday night, beating the record set by the New York Giants v New England Patriots Super Bowl in 2012, which was watched by 111.3 million.

Amongst a host of other accolades the Seahawks v Broncos clash also set the record for the biggest live U.S TV event on Twitter ever, with a reported 24.9 million Tweets.

There had been fears that due to the one-sided nature of the result people would tune out early and therefore lower the overall view count, but it clearly made little difference in the end.
