There are only two reasons to watch the Super Bowl — commercials during the telecast and the television program following the big game. Now thanks to CBS, it looks like the commercials will be the only highlight of the night for this TV Addict.
This morning, CBS announced that its generic procedural drama CRIMINAL MINDS has been awarded the much coveted post-Super Bowl time-slot. While I have nothing against CSI, sorry CRIMINAL MINDS, it definitely is not worthy of the post-Super Bowl timeslot. Such a coveted time period in the past has gone to truly special shows — ALIAS, GREY’S ANATOMY and THE SIMPSONS to name a few. CRIMINAL MINDS, while no doubt entertaining to fans of the procedural drama, is not in the same league as the previous mentioned shows.
It is this TV Addict’s opinion that HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER deserved the big post-Super Bowl promotional push. Not only is the series the funniest comedy on TV, Robin Sparkles would have been a huge hit during the half time show. Wardrobe malfunction anyone?
