‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Hit Season Low As Ravens Peck Texans

It took the Baltimore Ravens awhile to get in the game against the Houston Texans last night on Monday Night Football, but in the end they grinded out a 23-16 victory, keeping the Super Bowl Xlvii champs on track for their first playoff appearance in three years. However, now 12 weeks into the controversial season, it was only a dark victory for Espn and the NFL that one might detect in Edgar Allan Poe's “The Raven” poem. With a 6.0 in metered market results, last night's…

President Donald Trump Picks Patriots to Win Super Bowl Li Over Falcons
This article originally appeared on Si.com.

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.

In Super Bowl, First Ad May Not Be the Best

One of the nation’s biggest Super Bowl advertisers is pulling its commercials away from the front of the line.

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.

Madison Avenue Stuffed Super Bowl 50 With More Ads Than Past Games

Madison Avenue Stuffed Super Bowl 50 With More Ads Than Past Games
TV viewers who tuned to Super Bowl 50 this weekend likely gorged themselves on chicken wings, beer and sandwiches. Their eyes, meanwhile, were led to feast on something else: ads.

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

When Super Bowl 50 Starts, It’s Lance Barrow’s Game To Win

When Super Bowl 50 Starts, It’s Lance Barrow’s Game To Win
Lance Barrow has developed a ritual for Super Bowl Sunday, a little something to fortify himself before sitting down to watch the hours-long spectacle that will unfold this weekend. He checks in with loved ones and mentors, who over the years have included noted sportscasters Pat Summerall and John Madden.

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,

Super Bowl Ad Review: Shock Top’s Web Trailer May Not Electrify TV Screen

Super Bowl Ad Review:  Shock Top’s Web Trailer May Not Electrify TV Screen
T.J. Miller has an interesting conversation with the top of a beer tap in a funny Super Bowl ad for a brew called Shock Top. Will he have the right conversation with the suds-guzzling crowd watching the game?

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.

Watch: The 9 Greatest Super Bowl Moments That Had Nothing to Do with Football
Rumor has it that the Super Bowl is all about the NFL, but the frenzied sharing of 2014's game day ads says otherwise. In the days following the famous scrimmage, it's often the moments that have little to do with football that prompt the most discussion. To find the Super Bowl's best moments off the clock, Logo TV polled over 2,000 viewers on their favorite game day events that didn't involve pigskins or forward passes. The results uncovered strange stunts, touching commercials and an awe-inspiring rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Janet Jackson’s Nipple & More: The 6 Most Shocking Super Bowl Moments

Forget football, what Super Bowl Sunday’s really about is all the fireworks that happen around the game. Whether it’s some halftime show antics or some post-game dissing, football’s biggest night has always been full of drama.

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.

Super Bowl: Which Advertisers, Media Face Greatest Pressure?

Super Bowl: Which Advertisers, Media Face Greatest Pressure?
The Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos aren’t the only entities who have a lot at stake when Super Bowl Xlviii debuts on Fox this Sunday (weather permitting).

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.

Bud Light Launches New Super Bowl Campaign Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger Playing Ping-Pong, Don Cheadle And A Llama And More

Bud Light released teasers featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Don Cheadle and Reggie Watts, in preparation for their big Super Bowl ad.

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.

How the NFL Dominated TV in 2013

How the NFL Dominated TV in 2013
Nine out of the Top 10 most-watched TV broadcasts in 2013 were football games – the lone non-football program on Nielsen's year-end report was the Oscars. The statistics company explained in its overview that football's ubiquity has become de rigueur for their annual list, which this year measured viewership between December 31st, 2012 and December 8th, 2013.

Kanye West announced Kim Kardashian's pregnancy just before New Year's Eve in 2012, and the latter's baby bump made headlines until she gave birth prematurely on June 15. In the past year, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also finalized her divorce from Kris Humphries, dyed her hair blond and got engaged—yet none of that was enough to make the new mom Bing's most-searched celebrity of the year. The 33-year-old E! star has been outranked by Beyoncé, who edged Kardashian out of the top spot.
