    The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers became the most watched Super Bowl ever after bringing in more than 123 million viewers on Sunday.


    The Chiefs' 25-22 victory in overtime gave CBS its most-watched telecast ever with 123.4 million average viewers across the CBS TV broadcast and platforms like Paramount+, Univision, NFL digital properties, and more, a press release from CBS Sports read.

    The viewership for Sunday's battle at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas saw a 7% increase over last year's Super Bowl coverage which drew 115.1 million viewers, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

    At one point, more than 200 million viewers watched all or part of the 2024 Super Bowl, across networks, the release noted. That's up by 10% over last year's Super Bowl, which scored 184 million viewers at one point during Super Bowl LVII, in which the Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35.

    CBS also scored the largest audience in history for a single network with 120 million viewers, the CBS Sports release read.

    To put the Super Bowl audience into perspective, Sunday's viewership comes close to the between 125 million and 150 million viewers who tuned on CBS, ABC, and NBC in to watch the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969, but those figures are not official, THR noted.

    The Super Bowl ratings follow the best ratings the NFL has seen in both the regular season and the playoffs since 2015, Deadline noted.

    In January, the NFL, Fox, and CBS celebrated after the two conference championship games scored massive ratings with more than 50 million viewers each, a first in the last ten years, as previously reported.

    The AFC Championship Game on CBS featuring the Chiefs' 17-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens brought in 55.4 million viewers, The Hollywood Reporter noted. CBS's numbers were the largest ever for an AFC title game.

    The NFC Championship on Fox generated even better numbers, with the 49ers' come-from-behind 34-31 victory against the Detroit Lions recording 56 million viewers. Fox had its biggest audience for an NFC title game since the New York Giants' 20-17 win in overtime against San Francisco in 2012.
