Telecast includes Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band in Bridgestone Super Bowl XLIII Halftime Show

Jennifer Hudson and Faith Hill pregame performances included

More than 151 million Americans tuned into Super Bowl XLIII -- making it the most-watched program in U.S. television history -- and with good reason.

The game featured 12 Super Bowl records, including James Harrison's 100-yard interception-return touchdown, Larry Fitzgerald's incredible fourth quarter and, of course, Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes' toe-tapping, game-winning touchdown reception with 35 seconds remaining in the game to give the Steelers an NFL-record sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The entertainment kicked off in pregame and continued during halftime with memorable musical performances. The St. Petersburg Times posed the question, "How AWESOME was Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's halftime set?" after watching Springsteen's performance in the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLIII Halftime Show. And the pregame festivities featured stirring performances from Jennifer Hudson (national anthem) and Faith Hill ("America the Beautiful").

The complete NBC Super Bowl XLIII broadcast, including the pregame and halftime performances, will encore exclusively on NFL Network on Thursday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. ET and again at 12:30 a.m. ET/10:30 p.m. MT.

NFL Network also will re-air Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's Super Bowl week press conference on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. ET.
