    2010 Super Bowl - Highest rated TV show ever

    Super Bowl is most watched TV show ever - Yahoo! Finance=

    The Nielsen Co. estimated Monday that 106.5 million people watched the New Orleans Saints upset the Indianapolis Colts on CBS. That beats the "M-A-S-H" finale, which had 105.97 million viewers in an era when there were fewer television sets.

    That's a lot of people, but as that link said, you have to think about how many more TV's there are now. It'd be interesting to see a stat like that, comparing number of viewers to number of households with a TV or something.

    Should say, "2010 Super Bowl is most watched TV show to date."

    A co-worker said that to me. I would come back with this. There is also a lot more to watch now days. Back in the Mash days TV was very concentrated with very few options. Now you have 100s of options. The sheer amount of TVs argument may hold some water though.

    Maybe, but it's not like there's much else on TV during the Super Bowl.

    Maybe true but I don't think the Super Bowl is nearly as big of a deal as it was 10 years ago.

    Aside from the fact that it had the most viewers of any show in history?

    I don't think it's the must-watch viewing year-in and year-out it used to be though.

    Keep in mind that statistic does not take into account viewing time. If some checked the score they are counted as a viewer. I think there is a lot more of that now than their used to be.

    I don't even know what I am arguing here. At one point I was arguing the SB stat was as impressive as the MASH one, now I am arguing the opposite. I have just had one of those days I guess.

    Think about how many people who watch at bars, sportsbooks, friends houses, dorms, etc. who I believe aren't even counted into that total. Number would be outrageous if you counted all those people.
