Super Bowl was highest viewed ever

Mars

– Fox’s Super Bowl telecast of the Seahawks’ victory over the Broncos is the most-watched TV event in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers on Sunday night.

The Nielsen company said Monday the telecast broke a viewership record set by the Super Bowl two years ago.

The halftime show featuring Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers drew 115.3 million viewers, beating the 110.8 million that tuned in for Beyoncé last year and the record of 114 million hooked by Madonna two years ago.

“Downton Abbey” on PBS was the second-most watched thing on television during prime-time Sunday with 6.8 million viewers, according to Nielsen Fast National ratings.

Meanwhile, on Broadway, Super Bowl week turned into mostly a super bust.

Data from The Broadway League shows box office grosses declined $2.4 million and ticket buyers fell by more than 15,000 for the week ending Sunday, despite the influx of thousands of tourists.
