The Denver Broncos may have checked out of the Super Bowl early, but the rest of America was very tuned in.

The 2014 Super Bowl was the most watched Super Bowl in the game's history, Capital New York's Alex Weprin reported Monday. The game brought in 111.5 million viewers, making it the most watched TV show in US history:

That is an improvement compared to the 2013 Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers which grabbed 108.41 million viewers. The 2011 and 2012 Super Bowl's brought in slightly more than that, but none as high as this year's 43 - 8 Seattle Seahawks victory.
