Yeah, I find it hard to believe as well. The ratings for Sunday's Super Bowl in major markets tied the Giants/Broncos matchup in Super Bowl XXI......

Super Bowl Rating Ties Giants-Broncos for Highest - Bloomberg
The Packers’ 31-25 victory in Arlington, Texas, drew a 47.9 rating in the biggest U.S. media markets, matching the percentage for the New York Giants-Denver Broncos title contest in 1987.....

Does anyone else find this hard to believe? I'm not sure where Super Bowl XLII ranked, but I would have thought it would have higher ratings than the Giants' first Super Bowl appearance, which was (yikes) 24 years ago.
