Super Bowl XLV said to be most-watched show in TV history

More than 111 million people tuned into Super Bowl XLV Sunday night, making it the most-watched program in TV history.

106.5 million watched 2010’s Super Bowl.

Fox became the first network to exceed 100 million viewers for a night in primetime, according to fast-national ratings released Monday by Nielsen Media Research.

FOX Sports’ broadcast of Super Bowl XLV averaged 111 million viewers and is the most-watched television program in U.S. history, obliterating the prior record of 106.5 set last year during Super Bowl XLIV by 4.5 million viewers and the 106.0 million for the series finale of M*A*S*H, which held the viewership record from 1983 to 2010.
