An average of 123.4 million viewers watched the Kansas City Chiefs become the eighth team in NFL history to win back-to-back titles after defeating the San Francisco 49ers in overtime on Sunday, as reported by Variety.

Super Bowl LVIII is now the most-watched broadcast in television history.

A reported 112 million tuned into the big game on CBS, the largest figure ever on a single network. The remaining sum was split between CBS Sports, Nickelodeon, Paramount+, Univision, and NFL digital properties, such as the league's streaming service NFL+. Paramount Global said its streaming platform saw a record number of viewers, but exact numbers were not provided.

The previous record belonged to last year’s Super Bowl between the Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles with 115.1 million viewers.
