The ratings are in for last night’s big Superbowl game, and while the numbers were good, this year’s big game  didn’t set any records.

Via TV By The Numbers.

This year’s Superbowl earned a 46.3/69 Fast National Household rating, making it the second highest-rated Super Bowl in 27 years (1/26/86; 48.3/70; Chicago-New England). It was watched by 108.41 million viewers. This makes it the third most-watched program in television history (Super Bowl XLVI – 111.3 million; Super Bowl XLV – 111.0 million).

Elementary averaged 20.8 million viewers and a 7.8 rating with adults 18-49 in time-zone adjusted numbers.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Elementary’s numbers make it the smallest post-game audience since ABC aired Alias after the game in 2003.  It was, the last post-game show to begin airing after 11 pm.  That 35 minute black-out did Elementary no favors.

Also from EW, a chart of post-superbowl show ratings:

    Those are still good numbers, and to have that type of audience to see you sing — precioius!  But it wasn’t Jen’s first time at the SuperBowl, I believe she sang a few years back; right?

    It was a good superbowl. I enjoyed it this year. I am not surprised that the numbers were good.

    Jennifer sang the anthem in 2009. It was her first appearance after her family was murdered.

    Aww Elementary. It ‘only’ managed NCIS’ average total viewers per week even after Super Bowl. Can’t help to actually wonder how monstrous NCIS’ rating would be if CBS pick that one day as their post-Super Bowl show.
