Sadly, the London 2012 Summer Olympics are over!

Boo!

But somehow, they're still breaking records!

Not sports records but ratings records.

219.4 million Americans tuned in to watch the London Games, while only 215 million watched the Beijing Olympics.

The last super bowl has the record for all-time viewership in a single night with 111.3 million but the Olympics still drew a consistently HUGE crowd!

London's viewership topped Beijing by 12% and crushed Athens by 58%!

NBC averaged an astounding 31.1 million viewers PER NIGHT over the 17 nights in prime time.

It was the most watched non-U.S. hosted Summer Olympics since the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

That shiz cray!

Way to rock the ratings Summer Games!
