Super Bowl XLIII gets 4.3 M Viewers in Canada on CTV, RDS ... NBC gets 95.4 M in USA

Press release from CTV

SUPER BOWL XLIII attracted a super audience in Canada on CTV and RDS, with a combined 4.293 million viewers watching the Pittsburgh Steelers' 27-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.* With 9.5 million viewers– or nearly one-in-three English-speaking Canadians – tuning in to some or all of the broadcast on CTV, preliminary overnight data from BBM Nielsen Media Research confirms that SUPER BOWL XLIII is the most-watched telecast of the year in Canada. The broadcast attracted a 48.4 Share for Men A25-54, meaning nearly half of the English-speaking population in this demo watched the game.

SUPER BOWL XLIII peaked at 4.6 million viewers at 10:02 p.m. ET, as Pittsburgh's Santonio Holmes made a dramatic end-zone catch behind three Arizona defenders with 42 seconds left in the fourth quarter, clinching the Steelers' record-setting sixth SUPER BOWL championship – the most-ever for a single franchise in NFL history.
NBC's presentation of Super Bowl XLIII was the second-most-watched ever for the sports franchise, falling just shy of last year's record game. Yet the network's special presentation of "The Office" fell short of most post-Bowl entertainment telecasts.

The Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizona Cardinals nail-biter averaged 95.4 million viewers during its four-hour-plus telecast. That's down a mere 2% from last year's game, but is still a very formidable total and on par with 2007's game.
