A LOT of eyes were watching last night's Super Bowl, featuring the New York Giants playing the New England Patriots. Not as many as last year, but still A LOT!
With a 47.8 rating/71 share, the game received third-highest Super Bowl overnight rating ever behind last year’s game and 1987′s Super Bowl XXI, which both earned earned a 47.9 rating.
The game may not have broken national records, but it did have the best ratings an NFL game in the Boston market has ever seen with 56.7 rating/81 share. In the New York area, the game was rated the second-highest overnight for an NFL game behind Super Bowl XXI with 49.7 rating/74 share.
Clearly, New England tuned in with big expectations but the Patriots didn't deliver. Who were U rooting for?
