[NEWS] 'THE VOICE' TAKES A 27% LEAD OVER LAST YEAR'S 'GLEE' IN EARLY SUPERBOWL RATINGS
In early ratings, NBC’s Super Bowl ranked the third-biggest NFL telecast ever.
Sunday’s game delivered a massive overnight household rating of 47.8 — less than one percent lower than the Super Bowl’s all-time high telecasts (47.9 for both Super Bowl XLV and Super Bowl XXI).
While NBC’s post-game presentation of the second season opener of The Voice (arguably the more important telecast for the network) garnered a hearty 19.4 rating. That’s up 27 percent from Fox’s post-Super Bowl telecast of Glee last year.
