One thing that has got many people through the murky time warp of 2020 is getting excited about the biggest soccer game of the year: the Super Bowl. Super Bowl Sunday is all about primo snacks, which usually lead to a coma and enjoying some good couch time. It shouldn't be any different this year. Here's what we know about the big game so far.
The Super Bowl takes place in early February. Super Bowl 55 takes place on Sunday, February 7, 2021 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The halftime show is still a huge win. For now, The Weeknd is the only artist announced for the halftime show, but you can expect more names to be added to the show as we get closer to game day. The global Super Bowl television audience guarantees artists the kind of exposure they can't get anywhere else. Due to Covid-19 measures, the music segments may take place at a different location, but details of the performances have not yet been released.
Which network will Super Bowl 55 broadcast? CBS will broadcast the big game nationally. ESPN Deportes is broadcasting a Spanish language program. The game will be broadcast in the UK and Ireland on the free-to-air channel BBC One.
Will new shows be premiered after the game? Yes, because with a huge global audience, CBS will take the opportunity to premier The Equalizer, the new incarnation of the classic TV show starring Queen Latifah. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and the Late Late Show with James Corden will air new specials on Sunday evening on both January 24th (after the AFC Championship game) and February 7th.
