Did online streaming cut into Super Bowl TV ratings?

Ratings for the Super Bowl XLVI are out and once again, it’s the most watched TV program in history that drew an average of 111.3 million viewers. It is also the first Super Bowl to be streamed online and Verizon Wireless’ mobile subscribers. I’m willing to bet that since the Super Bowl was streamed online that it did cut into the TV numbers for the Super Bowl as last year’s game drew an average of 111 million viewers. And if you compare Super Bowl TV ratings since 2000, number back up my claim.
