The game, which was won by the Giants, posted the highest rating in 16 years with an average of 40.5 rating in adults 18-49 demo. Moreover, the halftime show which featured Madonna as one of the musical performers posted a record for the most watched Super Bowl halftime show with 114 million viewers, up 3% from last year's show headlined by Black Eyed Peas.

Benefiting from the Super Bowl lead-in was "The Voice" season 2 premiere.
