The New York Giants' thrilling 17-14 win over the New England Patriots in Arizona was the most-watched Super Bowl ever in the United States, with 97.5 million viewers, Nielsen Media Research said Monday.

The game eclipsed the previous record of 94.08 million, set when Dallas faced Pittsburgh in 1996. Last year's game between Indianapolis and Chicago was seen by 93.2 million people....why? Cause alot of ppl wanted to see the Colts/Manning do well is what my guess is.

Fox charges $2.7 million per 30 seconds slot during the Superbowl. Higher the ratings, the more money Fox/NFL makes.

It appears to me Pittsburgh has a big market of viewers and a long history of fans so getting them in the Superbowl would be a "must" for $$$$$$$/advertisement purposes.

Between Zona and Philly..who would the fans/ppl of America wil get excited about, to play against Pitt in the Superbowl?????

Afterall, the NFL is such big business now and all they care about are ratings and commercials slots in the Superbowl.

PITTSBURGH AND WHO (ZONA/PHILLY) WILL DRAW THE 90+ NIELSEN RATINGS FOX/NFL ARE LOOKING FOR TO BANKROLL IN THE SUPERBOWL???

I would think Pittsburgh and Philly would draw ALOT of viewers which mean very high ratings for the NFL/Fox.
 
Why is this a factor? Cause the damn refs dictate the game with their penalties to kill drives.......yes, it's the old conspiracy theory again.

The Keystone Bowl: Steelers vs. Eagles

Jawing would be required, Mike Tomlin would get some of the praise he so richly deserves, Ben Roethlisberger would get praised for his exquisite game-managing skills, and the Eagles would get talking heads to talk up the “Philly is the new Boston” storyline.

But, really, is there a better Super Bowl than this? Both teams can throw and run, and they’ll put their speed (Willie Parker, DeSean Jackson, Brian Westbrook, and both defenses) on a field in Tampa that’s more conducive to fleet feet than the Ketchup Bottle and the Linc, chilly and brutal as they are.

Oh, and it’s a regional rivalry. Oh, and it’s interesting, nationally, two bigger markets with high profile names. Oh, and it’s new coach vs. old coach, McNabb vs. his past, Jim Johnson vs. person LeBeau, and the never-done-it Eagles vs. the one-for-the-other-thumb Steelers.

The past three seasons, the Super Bowl winner was a No. 5 seed (2007 Giants), a No. 3 seed (2006 Colts) and, for the first and only time, a No. 6 seed (2005 Steelers). Throw in the No. 4-seeded Ravens in 2000, and four times in this decade's first eight seasons the Super Bowl was claimed by a team that didn't even earn a first-round bye.

The higest seeded team right now is #2 Pittsburgh, #4 Arizona and TWO #6s Philly & Baltimore...so base on the odds of four times in this decade's first eight seasons the Super Bowl was claimed by a team that didn't even earn a first-round bye....so the odds of the best team to win a Superbowl would be #6 Baltimore or #6 Philly.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have sold out every home game since the 1972 season.[32] In November 2007, the Steelers were ranked as the most popular local sports franchise out of the 122 teams in the NHL, NBA, MLB and NFL, by a study from Turnkey Sports.[33][34] Another study ranked Pittsburgh as having the highest percentage of female fans of their local football team, ranking twice as high as the average city.[35]

the game is going to be on NBC not FOX
 
 
other than that who cares....everyone is going to watch the Super Bowl....it's the quality of the game, not the match-up that dictates the ratings...
 
 
every Super Bowl starts out with a 90+ rating....then depending on who the game goes it hold steady or drops...
 
In last years game alot of people who would not normally watch the Super Bowl tuned in to see if the Pats would go undefeated
 
then they stayed tuned in because it was such a good close game....

I don't see where it would be difficult to hype up the explosive offense of ARIZONA w/ Kurt Warner, Fitzgerald & Boldin (if he can get healthy).
 
 
To your point:
Phantom holding & early whistles on possible turnovers calls have been more abundant than any time I can remember seeing in close to 40 years of watching games every Sunday.

This is a great point.  I went to school at Penn State where I fought this never ending civil war of Pittsburgh and Philly every day and I think it could be a great matchup even with the rivalry aside.  If only we could play the game at Beaver Stadium though, then we would have a real safety problem on our hands

Wouldnt you think they would have had Green Bay & the Pats in the Super Bowl last year if it were what the fans wanted to see? Just a thought.

The Pittsburgh/Seattle SuperBowl is all the proof we need that the NFL can and has rigged games for a desired outcome.

Undefeated Pats???? and New York...they could put the Texans vs. the undefeated Pats last season and it would get the big rating because they wanted to see 17 or 18-0.

 

I Pitt superbowl will get alot of rating, throw in the fact a Ken Whisenhunt going up against his old team and Warner grocery boy on a comeback to the superbowl will get alot of ppl excited.
