Who watched where?
Interestingly enough, New York City wasn't among the metropolitan areas most-glued to TV sets for the Giants' win, according to NFL numbers.

Top 5 markets, SB XLII ratings Market Rating
Boston 55.6
Indianapolis 54.1
Jacksonville 52.0
Pittsburgh 50.8
Washington., D.C. 50.3

So Pittsburgh had a higher rating than even NY. I guess so many tuned in praying for divine intervention to smite the evil Pats.

Yep, hate is a four letter word.
Its funny, the top three markets after Boston were all Pats haters!
