More than 200 million watched at least part of the Super Bowl on Sunday


The Super Bowl had an average of 123.4million viewers on Sunday night, the most watched telecast in history and the second-most watched US broadcast event behind the Apollo 11 moon landing.

The previous record belonged to last year's Super Bowl, which drew 115.1million average viewers. CBS Sports announced the astonishing figures less than 24 hours after the Kansas City Chiefs lifted the Lombardi Trophy

On CBS itself, 120million people watched the game, the largest audience in history for a single network. Incredibly, more than 200million viewers watched at least part of the Super Bowl across all networks and streams that were broadcasting the game.

Paramount+, CBS' streaming service, also had a record-setting audience for the Super Bowl.

NFL regular-season games averaged 17.9 million viewers in 2023, tied for the second highest since averages were first tracked in 1995.

Nine events have garnered at least a billion viewers, including three sporting events. The opening ceremonies of the 1996 Sumer Olympics is the No 2 watched event in history with 3.5 billion viewers.

This year's Super Bowl is the No 16 most-watched event in worldwide history.
