Super Bowl XLVII is now known as the third most-watched program in the history of television in the United States.
The Nielsen Co. claims that nearly 108.4 million people watched the event where the Baltimore Ravens schooled the San Francisco 49ers 34-31. The only other programs to top this year's Super Bowl were 2011's game with 111.3 million views and 2010's game with 111 million viewers.
Football ratings have suffered slightly this year but despite this CBS had their fingers crossed that this game would break a record for most watched broadcast in American television history.
The power outage during the game sparked loads of questions among viewers. There were some 47.7 million social media posts on the topic during the game.
CBS also caught some flak from the Parents Television Council for failure to edit out a profanity which came from Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco following the game. Microphones picked up Flacco's comment about his team's awesomeness.
"No one should be surprised that a jubilant quarterback might use profane language while celebrating a career-defining win, but that is precisely the reason why CBS should have taken some precautions," said Tim Winter, president of the group requesting that the Federal Communications Commission address CBS on this issue.
