The only thing rivaling the New England Patriots' win over the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's Super Bowl was the ratings it brought in for NBC.
The network pulled in a record 114.4 million viewers, making Super Bowl XLIX the most-watched event in U.S. television history.
Last year's match-up between the Seahawks and Denver Broncos brought in 112.2 million viewers for Fox.
Maybe this year's viewing totals will make advertisers feel a little better about the $4.5 million dollars they shelled out for every 30 seconds of air time.
The game spiked to 120.8 million viewers, thanks to a climactic conclusion.
The extremely close game and nail-biting fourth quarter might also be the reason NBC was able to retain those viewers for so long. Fox wasn't so lucky with last year's 43-8 blowout win for the Seahawks.
Katy Perry's — let's call it "unique" — halftime show also did well, with 118.5 million people tuning in to watch her perform alongside Missy Elliott and Lenny Kravitz. That's up more than 3 million viewers from Bruno Mars' and The Red Hot Chili Peppers' performance last year.
The Super Bowl also gave NBC's "The Blacklist" a boost as well. Thanks to the network moving it over to the post-game time slot, it raked in 26.5 million viewers and earned the highest rating for a scripted show since the "Friends" finale in 2004.
