With an average of 111.3 million viewers, this year’s game surpassed last year’s record-breaking average viewership of 111.0 million.

The New York Giants-New England Patriots playoff may have been the cause célèbre – viewership peaked during the fourth quarter at 117.7 average viewers - but Madonna’s much-anticipated halftime performance managed to rake in 114.0 million average viewers alone.
