    Actually, more and more people every year are watching the TV Event live at the same time and in the same way. Obviously, people are ALSO streaming and recording it. And, Twitter and Facebook and other social networks increase peoples' interest in watching the game. But actual viewership is UP.

    Super Bowl draws 111.5M viewers

    For the fourth time in five years, the Super Bowl has set a record for the most-watched television event in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers
    They make clear references in the article that this number is viewers of broadcast TV, not the sum of tv, streaming, recorded replay, etc.

    And that's without simply using a net-based TV app to just watch the game.

    We're long past the point where a "TV Event" actually entails everyone watching the "event" at the same time and in the same way.
    Plus the fact that there actually are many folks, like me, who have zero interest in football or the Super Bowl and will not watch it.
