Super Bowl XLV, not unpredictably, had become the most watch show in TV show, attracting 111 million viewers.
The Packers-Steelers game was hugely well-known in the Salt Lake TV marketplace, although not as well-known as the national average. The Super Bowl averaged a 46.0 rating nationally; it averaged a 38.2 rating locally - a distinction of about 17 %.
(A rating point represents 1 % of the total television-equipped households. A nationwide rating spot equals 1.159 million homes; a ranking point within the Salt Lake marketplace equals 9,539 houses.)
Our buddies at the local Fox station, KSTU-Ch. 13, are fast to position out that Sunday's game (that they telecast) beat last year's local ratings by 0.three points. And the 2009 Super Bowl by 4.1 points.
Oh, also previous year's game was on CBS affiliate KUTV-Ch. 2, whilst this year's game was on NBC associate KSL-Ch. 5.
Our buddies at Fox 13 also want us to know how the post-Super Bowl episode of "Glee" averaged a 17.1 rating locally, when compared with a 15.five for that post-Super Bowl episode of "Undercover Boss" on CBS last year and also the post-Super Bowl episode of "The Office" last year.
Which KSTU's post-Super Bowl newscast average a 10.8 when compared with a 7.5 for KUTV last year as well as an 8.4 for KSL last year.
