Thrilling Giants-Patriots game makes Super Bowl the second most-watched TV show ever
By DAVID BAUDER,
AP Television Writer
February 4, 2008


NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Giants' thrilling win over the New England Patriots was the most-watched Super Bowl ever, with 97.5 million viewers, Nielsen Media Research said Monday.

The game eclipsed the previous Super Bowl record of 94.08 million, set when Dallas defeated Pittsburgh in 1996. Only one other show in American broadcast history was watched by more people, the "M-A-S-H" finale in 1983, which drew 106 million viewers.

Sunday's game had almost all the ingredients Fox could have hoped for: a tight contest with an exciting finish involving a team that was attempting to make history as the NFL's first unbeaten team since 1972.

But the Giants ended New England's bid for perfection, 17-14. Throughout the game, the teams were never separated by more than a touchdown.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who was to appear on David Letterman's "Late Show" on Monday, also won bragging rights over his brother: Last year's win by Peyton Manning's Indianapolis Colts was seen by 93.2 million people, now the third most popular Super Bowl.

Fox, a division of News Corp., charged $2.7 million for 30 seconds of advertising time on the game.

An eye-popping 81 percent of all TV sets on in the Boston area Sunday were tuned in to the game. In New York, the audience share was 67 percent.

The audience peaked between 9:30 and 10 p.m. ET -- the fourth quarter -- with 105.7 million people watching, Nielsen said.

There were signs even before gametime that Fox could be headed for a record. The opportunity for a team to make history with football's first 19-0 record was a powerful draw. The Giants and Patriots also had a tight contest in late December that drew strong ratings.

The Giants' underdog run had also captivated the nation's largest media market, making up for the only potential weakness in the event as a drawing card: the lack of geographical diversity in the competing teams.

There were past Super Bowl games with higher ratings, topped by the 1982 game between San Francisco and Cincinnati (49.1 rating, 73 share). That indicates that a larger percentage of homes with televisions were watching the game. But since the American population has increased, along with the number of people with TVs, the actual number of people watching this year was higher.

The Giants-Patriots game's actual rating (43.3 rating, 65 share) was the highest for any Super Bowl since 1997. That means 43 percent of the nation's TV sets were tuned in to the game, and 65 percent of the TV sets that were turned on were watching football.
Holy shit. 2nd most watched Television program ever. The only thing I can think to say is...why the hell did so many people like M*A*S*H*??

I'm still laughing about the fact that they're the biggest chokers in the history of Boston Choke Artists...which is a list both long and distinguished.

And to think that Belichoke may be banned from the league by the time The Spygate Inquisition is over...

I'm all aflutter.

LMAO...the Browns, Indians and Cavs all overacheived in 2007...they all did much much better than any Cleveland fan had reason to expect.

So whatever you have to say doesn't matter. I mean...whatever you have to say doesn't matter anyways. But I'm completely happy with what all the Cleveland teams accomplished this year...and I really don't care that much about baseball or basketball anyways...you on the other hand...you must be pissed...and considering you've got that "City of Champions" banner up there......denial isn't a river in Egypt, boy.

Who said I'm pissed?

I didn't drive all the way from East Mesa to Glendale with a dog mask on to watch my team lose to a sub par NFC team.

Blue Jackets arn't doing half bad either. Yeah I know it's Columbus, but quite honestly they should've been called the "Ohio Blue Jackets".
