Super Bowl XLV (or 45, for those that aren’t Roman numerically-inclined) is officially the most watched Super Bowl–and for that matter the most watched TV event–of all time, drawing 111 million total viewers on average. All told, 162.9 million people tuned into the game at one point or another. Yes, that is about half of the entire country.

That is up from last year’s record of 106.5 million, when the game was on CBS.

Update: The official announcement, from the NFL, is after the jump.
