NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox's Super Bowl telecast of the Seahawks' victory of the Broncos is the most-watched television event in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers on Sunday night.

The Nielsen company said Monday the telecast broke a viewership record set by the Super Bowl two years ago between the New York Giants and New England Patriots. It's the fourth time in five years that a Super Bowl game has set a viewership record. Last year's game, with 108.6 million viewers, was the exception.

The game kept up its appeal to viewers despite being relatively non-competitive.

Fox said an estimated 2.3 million people watched its online stream of the game, peaking at the end of the third quarter.
