There are plenty of folks who still don’t know who won the Super Bowl last Sunday – even if they had the TV on for the big game. A lot of people, it seems, are there to check out the much-hyped commercials.
And Cadillac is claiming that its game-day spot for the new ATS compact luxury sedan, dubbed “Green Hell,” had the largest audience ever for a TV commercial broadcast in the U.S. – which meant it was seen by an estimated 111.3 million people.
The maker cites research by Kantar Media, which closely tracks the Super Bowl audience, minute-by-minute. It found that when the ATS spot ran, at 9:37 PM EST – during the two-minute warning official time out, the audience rating rose to 43.5, an all-time record for what was already the most widely watched Super Bowl ever.

Estimates are that the game was also seen by at least a billion people outside the U.S. – or roughly one in every six people on the planet.
