During the Carlsen – Anand World Championship match in Sochi, an average of about 175,000 people joined my commentary for each game (blog, twitter, and facebook), with a high of well over 200,000.

These are the numbers for game 11 from the top 10 countries

There were followers from over 150 countries overall. Norway came in at #14.
