Super Bowl XLVII (2013 TV Special)
President Donald Trump has picked the New England Patriots as his winner for Super Bowl Li over the Atlanta Falcons.
The decision is hardly a surprise, as Trump is friends with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.
In an interview on Fox News with Bill O’Reilly, Trump picked the Pats by eight points.

Anheuser-Busch InBev will for the second time in three years relinquish its hold on the first commercial slot in the Super Bowl, citing research showing that ads appearing later in the game fare better in the quest to command consumer attention. “We found that spot does not get the attention of other points in the game,” said Lisa Weser, a spokeswoman for the massive brewer, during a presentation to media on Tuesday.
In doing so, Anheuser is casting doubt on the importance of having pole position – a 30-second ad berth typically known as “1A” in Madison Avenue lingo – in one of the biggest annual media events in the United States. The company has long kicked off the marketing hoopla that surrounds the gridiron classic, which in recent years has typically commanded more than 110 million viewers.
Super Bowl 50 had the most commercials and promos of any regular broadcast of the annual gridiron classic, highlighting the dependence of both advertisers and TV networks on the game at a time when cultivating mass audiences for a media event has become a more arduous task.
The CBS broadcast contained 49 minutes and 35 seconds of advertising and promos, according to Kantar Media, a tracker of ad spending. Advertising, which totaled 39 minutes and 15 seconds, accounted for about 22% of the total broadcast. That total of ads and promos was surpassed only once, during CBS’ 2013 broadcast of Super Bowl Xlvii, when a blackout prompted the network to run a set of unscheduled promos for its shows as well as repeat one of the commercial breaks
Streaming coverage of Super Bowl 50 on CBS and NFL digital properties set viewership records in every category, with the game streamed across more platforms than ever. The live stream drew 3.96 million unique viewers across laptops, desktops, tablets, connected TV devices and mobile phones. Viewers consumed more than 402 million total minutes of coverage,
Barrow’s view of the Super Bowl is decidedly different from that enjoyed by tens of millions of TV viewers each year. When Super Bowl 50 kicks off on CBS this Sunday, Barrow will be sitting in the network’s broadcast facility at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, trying to figure out which of around 70 different cameras, hundreds of staffers and an arsenal of new sports-tv technology to put into play. “It will be like a little city,” he suggested. He is the coordinating producer of the event, likely to be the biggest that CBS — or any other network,
The people who make Shock Top would have you believe that it’s an upstart Belgian White, lovingly brewed in some entrepreneur’s tiny office based on a recipe treasured in his or her family throughout the ages. Yet the drink is actually a move by giant Anheuser Busch InBev to succeed in the growing category of craft beers. By devoting some of its massive ad buy – three minutes and 30 seconds – to Shock Top in Super Bowl 50, the beer company hopes to get the masses revved up about what they might think is a insouciant little brew that has nothing to do with Budweiser or Bud Light.
You want Miller to succeed.
The Peacock’s “Sunday Night Football” (pictured) extended its streak in the live sports series category to a sixth consecutive year. NBC’s other wins included Bob Costas for sports personality in studio, Michele Tafoya for sports reporter and Cris Collinsworth for sports event analyst.
NBC sibling Telemundo also nabbed two trophies, including Andres Cantor’s win for on-air personality in Spanish.
Fox Sports ran a close second to NBC with five nods, including the prize for live sports special for last year’s World Series coverage.
Turner Broadcasting pioneer and former Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner was feted with the org’s life achievement award.

The 109th World Series – Red Sox vs. Cardinals Fox
You don’t have to like football to like the Super Bowl. That’s because any given year, the lights can go out, or someone’s nipple can pop out, or a certain quarterback’s wife can spew out a post-game rant. Without further ado, here are the Super Bowl moments from over the years that really stand out.

It didn’t take long for The Boss to make a lasting impression during his Super Bowl Halftime Show. While his band rocked on, Bruce got a running start and slid on his knees across the stage…
With 30-second spots in the game going for around $4 million a pop, a lot of different media properties and sponsors are under extreme pressure to perform. Fox will want to do all it can to keep viewers tuned past halftime while taking advantage of the massive audience to hype everything from new programs to other ventures from its parent company, 21st Century Fox. Marketers will be under the gun to prove the millions they plunked down to appear in the game do more than generate retweets, Facebook likes and YouTube views. Social-media chatter is fun to note, but there’s little direct correlation between trending on Twitter and notching a revenue windfall for the first quarter.
Who’s feeling the heat?
Arnold Schwarzenegger A Ping-Pong Pro For Bud Light
The short, 10-second clips don’t reveal much about the larger commercial, but the teasers do feature Schwarzenegger in a blond wig, tight gym clothes, waving around a ping-pong paddle. “Whatever is coming,” reads the tagline at the end of the teaser, playing on the popular Game of Thrones tagline, “Winter is coming.”
Schwarzenegger will likely play a big part in the ad. He is being paid a reported $3 million.
A teaser featuring Cheadle has him standing in a hallway with a llama, making them ‘Donnie Llama.’
Finally, the last few teasers feature Watts, a comedian, acting as a DJ in what appears to be a Bachelorette party limo.
