Last night more than 111 million people sat down and occasionally jumped out of their seats during Super Bowl XLV (45). And for the second year in a row the Super Bowl broke the record for the most watched television show of all time. The game saw the Green Bay Packers defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to capture the Packers’ fourth Super Bowl Championship. And in doing so they knocked M.A.S.H down another spot to third place.  M*A*S*H* held the number 1 title with 106 million for 27 years from 1983 to 2010 until last years Super Bowl XLIV (36) which beat it by 4.5 million with 106.5 million viewers.
