As ratings go, SB XLVII’s 48.1 is tops

CBS reports that its Super Bowl XLVII coverage Sunday had an overnight household ratings/share of 48.1 and 71, the highest rated in metered market history.

It tops the 47.9 and 71 that Fox had for Green Bay-Pittsburgh in 2011. It’s also better than the 47.8 and 71 that NBC had last year for the N.Y. Giants-New England game.

The rating, for some reason, excludes the 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. PDT period during the power outage.

A more comprehensive ratings will be issued later when all markets are included.

The peak of the game came from 7:30 to 7:45 p.m. PDT — a 52.9 rating and 75 share.
