Fox's broadcast of Super Bowl XLV wasn't just big -- it was the most-watched television program of all time, according to preliminary ratings from the Nielsen Company, which says an average of 111 million viewers watched.

The previous record was held by last year's Super Bowl, which averaged more than 106.47 million viewers, pushing the finale of "M*A*S*H," which averaged 105.9 million viewers, into third place.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
