NBC has a full day planned for all you fans out there & it starts at 1pm with Super Bowl XLIII Pre-Game Show. Matt Lauer has an interview with President Obama from the White House. (the prez looks like a Steelers fan). Bob Costas will chat with Bruce Springsteen, so he can promote his new album, Working on a Dream. We’ll get play-by-plays of the goings-on in each teams lockeroom & Patriot’s coach, Bill Belichick will have a complete analysis of both teams. The game starts at 6pm. Jennifer Hudson will sing our National Anthem (and make me cry!) & Bruce Springsteen is doing the half-time entertainment with the E Street Band. Al Michaels & John Madden are the play-by-play announcers. The network generated a record $206 million in advertising revenue for the game telecast and $261 million for the entire day,
