The Super Bowl is, by far, the U. S. television program, which has the most American viewers. Based on the Nielsen Media Research, on the average, the Super Bowl has 40 percent of all the houses in the States and 60 percent of all the households are tuned into the Super Bowl when there is a game. This would mean that on the average and at any given moment, approximately 80 to 90 million American viewers tune into the Super Bowl. Also, it was estimated that around 130 to 140 million American watch some part of the game.
Some press releases given by the NFL have actually stated that the most recent games of the Super Bowl have been made available to a billion potential audiences worldwide. However, there have been a couple of independent studies that have been done which have suggested that the total number of international viewers on the average is a little over 100 million - and a majority of this number are American viewers.
And because of this great fame of the Super Bowl, you may be astonished to learn that there are completely no videotapes of the first two Super Bowl telecasts. It is particularly surprising for the Super Bowl I, since it has been covered by CBS and NBC, which are two of the biggest television networks. Sports Illustrated has stated that the only first telecast footage that existed was the first game's two-minute video clip. This is because during the earlier days of the television and sometime in the 1960s, the copies of the TV broadcasts were erased routinely, as nobody ever thought that there would be anyone who would want to replay a show that they have already seen. Also, during those days, videotapes were significantly expensive.
