NEW YORK (AP) — Did an 80-1 longshot really win the Kentucky Derby?

People apparently wanted to make sure of Rich Strike’s win. NBC Sports says some 36 million people watched a replay of the race on one of the network’s social media accounts, including a record-setting 11.6 million on TikTok.

That makes the Derby NBC’s most-watched program since the Super Bowl in February.

Otherwise, CBS was the most popular prime-time program on television last week.
