The Super Bowl is by far the most-watched televised event in the United States every year. Last year’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs drew an average of 113.06 million viewers with it peaking during Rihanna’s halftime show.

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 LVIII is set to kick off from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada at 6:30 p.m. ET with CBS carrying the broadcast this year.
