Super Bowl 49 Most Watched T-V Broadcast In History
Super Bowl 49 just upped the ante for most-watched Super Bowls of all time.
According to official numbers from Nielsen, more than 114-million viewers tuned in to NBC to watch the New England Patriots take the championship game over the Seattle Seahawks.
That bests last year's Super Bowl on Fox by more than two-million viewers and seals Sunday night's game as the most-watched television broadcast in history.
NBC also scored with its post-Super Bowl episode of "The Blacklist," which drew more than 26-million viewers to become the biggest audience for an NBC scripted series in more than ten years.
The special post-Super Bowl episode of "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" also delivered, reeling in nine-point-eight-million viewers. (Metro Networks Inc)
