Who came out on top as the most watched moment, commercial or play? For the second year in a row it was a play. Tom Brady’s Hail Mary throw into the end zone with just seconds left on the clock. Last year’s most watched moment was when Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw an incomplete pass to Mike Wallace in the final minute of the fourth quarter, giving Green Bay the Championship title.
The Super Bowl wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without the half- time show. There were mixed reviews about Madonna’s much anticipated half-time show. Not to mention a whole lot of buzz about MIA flipping the bird. Mixed reviews or not according to TiVo’s data Madonna’s performance kept the attention of the viewers with the highest viewership in numbers in the past four years. What did you think of the Material Girl’s star studded performance? Surprisingly, enough MIA’s little birdy didn’t get as many rewinds as you would think. Did you see it or did you find out about it post-game?
