Experts say those numbers indicate the game has a strong shot at being the most-watched Super Bowl of all time, and the second most-watched broadcast ever.
The game had a 43.3 rating and 63 share, Nielsen said. That's up from the 42.7 rating and 62 share in metered markets last year. Nielsen did not immediately have an estimate of how many people watched the game.
The metered market average this year was also missing Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston and Dallas due to Nielsen delays.
le. The most-watched Super Bowl ever was the 1996 game between Dallas and Pittsburgh, with 94.1 million people.
Last year's game between Indianapolis and Chicago was seen by 93.2 million people, Nielsen said.
