A total of 188.8 million viewers were exposed to the Super Bowl XLVIII telecast in the U.S., including 146 million “permanent” residents -- meaning people who live in the home where the game was on TV. Another 25 million incremental viewers -- meaning guests of those permanent residents -- watched the game in those homes. Looking at out-of-home viewers (those subscribing to Nielsen’s mobile Personal People Meter), another 17.4 million viewers watched the telecast in a bar, restaurant, etc. Data also showed that use of a second screen continues to grow for big events. Some 384,000 users streamed the game via Fox Sports Go as the sole means of watching the game.
