Madonna’s Super Bowl show watched by 114 million

Madonna’s Super Bowl Halftime show had more viewers than the game itself.

Billboard reports the pop icon’s performance had an audience of nearly 3 million more viewers than the football game.

The singer's halftime performance was seen by 114.0 million viewers, nearly 4 million more than last year's performance featuring the Black Eyed Peas.

It is the most-watched Super Bowl halftime show featuring entertainment; Bruce Springsteen, for example, attracted 95.7 million viewers.

Super Bowl 46 was the most-watched television program in U.S. history and the highest-rated Super Bowl in 26 years, according to fast national data from Nielsen.

The game, in which the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 21-17, was seen by a record 111.3 million viewers, beating last year's Super Bowl 45 on Fox by 300,000 viewers. Viewership peaked between 9:30 and 9:58 ET, when 117.7 million viewers tuned in.

Madonna did the Super Bowl show to promote her new single, "Give Me All Your Luvin’" , featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., who both appeared with her for the track; Madonna’s new album, "MDNA", is due March 26.
