The Super Bowl is by far the most-watch televised event in the United States every year. Last year’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals drew 99.18 million viewers, but that barely even ranks in the top-10 most-watched Super Bowls of all time.

Since 2010, Super Bowl viewership has reached at least 100 million in all but three years. Those three games all came in recent years, with 2022, 2021, and 2019 failing to reach the 100 million mark. The big game has seen an average of 106.16 million viewers over the last 13 years.

The most-watched Super Bowl of all time is XLIX, taking place in 2015 between the Patriots and the Seahawks. It was the first of a run that saw the Patriots end up in the Super Bowl four out of five years, winning three of those along the way.

Super Bowl LVII is set to kick off from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona at 6:30 p.m. ET with FOX carrying the broadcast this year.
