Apparently all of them :)

The Pittsburgh Steelers? victory over the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl was watched in an average of 45.85 million homes, the second-highest total in television history behind the final episode of ?M-A-S-H? in 1983.

The game was watched by an estimated 141.4 million people in the United States, ABC said, the second-highest total to view a program behind the 144.4 million who tuned to New England?s victory over Carolina in the 2004 Super Bowl. That number estimates the total amount of people to watch the game at any point

The estimated average of 90.7 million people ? or the estimated number of viewers throughout ? was the largest Super Bowl audience since the Steelers last played in the title game in 1996, a loss to Dallas that attracted an average of 94.1 million people watching. This year?s audience was 5 percent bigger than the 86.1 million people who watched the Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles last year.
