SUPERBOWL 2014. TV RATINGS TOP 111 MILLION VIEWERS : THE MOST WATCHED EVER IN THE HISTORY

The game was hardly an edge-of-the-seat thriller, but in the end the pull of the Super Bowl was all that mattered: A record 111.5 million viewers watched Fox’s coverage of the Seattle Seahawks’ dismantling of the Denver Broncos, the Nielsen company reported on Monday.

It was the largest audience in American television history, surpassing – just barely — the 111.3 million who watched the Super Bowl two years ago when the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in the last minute, 21-17.With this year’s result so one-sided, the early expectation had been that the game would fall short of the litany of records set by National Football League title games in preceding years.

But the power of live events seems to have triumphed again: many recent live specials on television have eclipsed previous ratings levels. Even with the game setting new records, one show was willing to stand up to the whirlwind.

And the show was rewarded with a slightly bigger audience than it drew last year, 6.8 million viewers, up from 6.6 million. The results might have been expected to be even a little better, given that the Super Bowl provided about as much suspense as an afternoon tea at the dowager’s — and fewer good lines. But there was still plenty of satisfaction at PBS, which for a third straight year saw its most popular drama ever hold its own against the N.F.L. extravaganza.
