What Is This? Super Bowl LI, the NFL’s championship game for the 2016 season, is played Feb. 5 at 6:30pm ET at NRG Stadium in Houston.
What’s LI In Regular Numbers? And we’re back with the Roman numerals. LI equals 51.
How Many People Watch It? Last year’s Super Bowl was a snoozer, yet an average of 111.9 million viewers watched it. It’s No. 3 on the list of most-watched TV shows in U.S. history, trailing only the 2015 and 2014 Super Bowls.
Song And Dance Lady Gaga performs at halftime. Would they dare to make Tony Bennett a special guest? Yes!
BUY STUFF! Super Bowl advertisers will pay over $5 million for 30 seconds to pitch you everything from cars to candy to tickets for disappointing movies. Newcomers include Busch (BUSCHHHH!) beer and
GNC. GoDaddy, Skittles, Kia, Snickers, Wix.com and Avocados From Mexico are coming back. Doritos, Butterfinger and Toyota are sitting this one out.
InsufferaBowl? The game itself has the AFC champion New England Patriots against the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons. Since this is the 90th time we’ve had to watch Tom Brady and the evil Patriots in the Super Bowl, it is the duty of everyone who loves football to root for the Falcons.
The Lead-Out If you’ve managed to stay conscious through the postgame trophy presentation, you can see what the Jack Bauer-less 24: Legacy show on FOX looks like.
