How Many People Watched Super Bowl 50?
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Sunday's Broncos-Panthers game couldn't quite top the excitement -- or the viewership -- of last year's Patriots-Seahawks game. Still, Super Bowl 50 ranks as the second highest rated Super Bowl in football history, according to overnight Nielsen ratings data. The game averaged a 49.0 rating, meaning that 49% of American homes with TV sets had the game turned on.
