Fox's Super Bowl telecast of the Seahawks' victory of the Broncos is the most-watched television event in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers on Sunday night.

The Nielsen company said Monday the telecast broke a viewership record set by the Super Bowl two years ago between the New York Giants and New England Patriots. It's the fourth time in five years that a Super Bowl game has set a viewership record. Last year's game, with 108.6 million viewers, was the exception.   Fox said an estimated 2.3 million people watched its online stream of the game, peaking at the end of the third quarter.

In Canada, the game was the second-highest rated Superbowl, with an average of 8 million viewers watching on CTV.

In fact, 18 million unique viewers tuned in at some point at or another during the lopsided win.
