Super Bowl XLV Gets Super Ratings

NEW YORK (AP) — Green Bay’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers is now the most watched program in television history.

Fox Broadcasting’s coverage of Super Bowl XLV averaged 111 million viewers, topping the previous record of 106.5 million for last year’s game.

A record 162.9 million viewers watched at least six minutes of the Green Bay Packers’ 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, according to figures released Monday by The Nielsen Co.

This is the fourth consecutive year for a record average viewership for a Super Bowl game.

The most-watched moment of the game was Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s final incomplete pass, which essentially clinched the game for Green Bay, according to TiVo Inc., the digital video recorder maker. The average Super Bowl viewer with a DVR either paused, rewound or fast-forwarded 145 times during the game, TiVo said.
