The Super Bowl is annually the most-watched television program, garnering over 100 million viewers in the United States. With the prices of high-definition televisions making the technology much more affordable, many people watch the game at home with their families, sometimes inviting friends over.
Other people enjoy being around bigger crowds, not having to clean up after the game and having the chance to win prizes at a bar, restaurant or other local establishment.
