1982: Super Bowl XVI sets a record

As one of the few remaining T.V. events consistently attracting an enormous audience, the National Football League’s annual championship game occupies more spots on the list of highest-rated broadcasts than any other program.

But while the total number of viewers is higher than ever, the best-rated Super Bowl by Nielsen metrics remains the San Francisco 49ers 26–21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Pontiac, MI’s Silverdome.

CBS aired the game with a 49 rating and a 73 share. -A.D.
