How have different television shows fared in that spot over the years? Zap2it looks at the shows from the last 26 years and declares each broadcast a touchdown or a fumble.

For example, there are cut-and-dried touchdowns, like the “Friends” episode watched by almost 53 million people or “The Practice” episode that propelled its popularity into eight seasons on ABC.

Then there are shows like “Alias,” whose post-Super Bowl audience of 17.4 million viewers was a series high for the show but one of the lowest post-Super Bowl broadcasts in history.
