Record 98.7 million tune in to SB XLIII
NEW YORK -- Upon further review, Nielsen Media Research now says that the Arizona-Pittsburgh Super Bowl game was the most-watched in history.
The Steelers defeat the Cardinals 27-23 in one of the most memorable Super Bowls ever.
On Monday, Nielsen had reported that this year's game had 95.4 million viewers -- impressive, but not a record-setter.
Nielsen explained the discrepancy of more than 3 million viewers by saying a more complete check of their records revealed additional viewership on some digital tier networks. The company hadn't been aware that they were showing the game.
