The Olympic Games are one of the most anticipated events on the planet. Taking place every four years, the Olympics attract a massive viewership. In fact, the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics set the world record for the most television viewers ever. More than two billion people watched some part of the show, and even more tuned in for the rest of the show. And that’s just the beginning. Here are some other events that were viewed by millions of people.
While the Super Bowl of 2013 may be the highest-rated game ever, it wasn’t able to top the list of most-watched television events of all time. While many people may be a bit cynical about the Super Bowl, it is a proven fact that other events on television have drew larger audiences. As of this writing, 9/11 is no longer on the list of most-watched events, but it did top the list for one day in 2008.
While the Oscars and Grammy Awards were the two most-watched events in the United States, the final match of Euro 2020 was the most-watched in the UK in 20 years. The game attracted 17.8 million viewers to BBC One alone, while the final match on ITV pulled in five million people. The ratings of this game have helped make the game the third-most-watched TV event ever.
Another event that broke the record for most-watched television event is the moon landing. In 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon and was watched by 530 million people worldwide. In those days, televisions were not very common in households and only a few people in a household had access to one. That was enough to make the moon landing one of the most-watched events in television history.
While other events have topped the list of most-watched TV events in the United States, the Super Bowl is undoubtedly the most watched in the world. As it turns out, it is more than a football game. The Super Bowl also broke records for the most-streamed live TV event on Twitter. There are even records for the biggest U.S. sporting event on Twitter. But while the Super Bowl is arguably the most watched TV event in the world, it remains a controversial topic.
The Super Bowl has been a highly anticipated event for years. The most-watched TV event in the past decade has been the Super Bowl, but it was also the first time in the history of the NFL that a scripted show made it into the top 100. The one-hour season finale of “The Big Bang Theory” managed to scare up an estimated 18.5 million viewers on Eye Network. The Super Bowl has been a big hit since then, and the NFL will have its fair share of high-profile games this year.
While sports events are always big draws, there are surprisingly few sports programs that make the top-100 list. NFL football games dominate the list, accounting for 95 percent of all broadcasts. Ten Summer Olympics broadcasts were broadcast live, along with seven college football games and two NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships. This leaves little room for scripted series to break through. Only one network program made the top 100. And that’s not all that surprising, considering the popularity of the Super Bowl and the other big sporting events.
