More than 111 million people donated their eyeballs to Super Bowl XLV on Sunday night making it the most-watched program in TV history, says the Hollywood Reporter. What would be interesting would be to cross reference that number with the Ruffles people and see how many bags of chips that translates to. THERE'S a statistic. According to Nielsen Media Research FOX became the first network ever to exceed 100 million viewers for a night in prime time, and it's the fourth consecutive Super Bowl to set a viewership record.
