The Super Bowl 2011 is the new most watch TV program of all time, beating the Super Bowl 2010 by almost 5m viewers. The Packers won the Super Bow XLV, but so did FOX and the Super Bowl Advertisers. Nielsen has released the preliminary results and counts an average of 111,010000 viewers during the Big Game. The Super Bowl 2011 was viewed in 53.3 million households, with a preliminary 46.0 U.S. household rating.

In the local markets, Milwaukee and Pittsburgh were tied, with a 59.7 household rating.  Other high local market ratings include Columbus, OH and Nashville.

“Super Bowl XLV caps what is arguably the most successful season that any sports league has ever had,” said Pat McDonough, “The number of people watching NFL games has never been higher, with 24% more people watching the average NFL game this year than just five years ago.  The Super Bowl continues to be in a category of its own, with an appeal that transcends sports and extends even to the commercials.  Because of the cliff-hanger nature of the game, viewers were tuning in until the very end, driving viewing levels to new heights.”

Last year Nielsen ratings saw an average of 106,480 million viewers during Super Bowl XLIV. The Super Bowl 2009 had 98,732 million viewers. Since 2008 the Super Bowl audience size has been setting records. Before that the M*A*S*H finale in 1983, which was seen by an average of 50.2 million homes has held that record for a very long time.
