Best Answer

Super Bowl XLV, in which the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25, was the most-watched American television show in history. The February 6th FOX telecast averaged 111 million viewers, which surpassed the previous record of 106.5 million set in 2010 by CBS' telecast of Super Bowl XLIV. That contest, in which the New Orleans Saints pulled off a 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, broke the record of 105.9 million, set in February 1983 by the final episode of "M*A*S*H".
