2013 Super Bowl MOST WATCHED EVER!

The 2013 Super Bowl has set a ratings record, CBS announced Monday morning.

Though the final numbers have not been tallied, the network issued a press release touting the milestones its broadcast had reached.

The game, which saw the Baltimore Ravens eke out a win over the San Francisco 49ers, drew an overnight household rating of 48.1/71 in metered markets -- the highest ever. That means that one out of every two televisions in the country was watching the game. The blackout that struck in the third quarter was not included.

Not surprisingly, Baltimore had the highest ratings of any of the markets Nielsen looked at.

I watched it (in a bar) and it was my first ever

Why is the Super Bowl on at night? Why can't it be at 2 o'clock in the afternoon? Kids have school the next day and they're all pooped out after imitating their fathers all day and night.

Correction to the stupid HuffPo

This one goes down as the 3rd most watched ever. Less viewers than last year and the year previous to that.

And it was a stead decline in viewership thoughout the night, probably because of what appeared to be a blowout Ravens victory.

I haven't seen if there was a significant (or any at all) bump for the halftime show.

The "stupid HuffPo" probably knows the difference between "less" and "fewer."

The LA Times also reported it was "most watched" first thing this morning.

No. It was the third most watched Super Bowl after 2011 and 2012. Still huge ratings but more people watched Madonna than Beyonce.

r1 is an impostor. Madonna is actually very pleased to learn that her half-time show remains the most watched in SuperBowl history. BeYAWNce actually LOST viewers during her performance.
