Super Bowl Crushes Oscars: 115 Million to 39 Million

Last night an estimated 114.7 million people watched the championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.

By comparison, the most recent Academy Awards’ ceremony — Hollywood’s biggest night — only managed to grab 39.3 million viewers.

Just sayin’.
