CBS Takes Wraps Off Plans for Super Bowl Commercial Special -- Including Replacing One of the Hosts Deadline
CBS has tapped one of the hosts of "The Talk" to co-host its 13th annual special about the Super Bowl's top commercials, reports Deadline.com.
“The Talk’s” Aisha Tyler will join CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason as co-host of the special, "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials." The program is slated to air Jan. 30, four days before the Super Bowl.
Tyler replaces Jillian Michaels, who co-hosted last year.
“Viewers once again will get to vote for their favorite Super Bowl commercial of all time,” the piece notes, with voting already under way.
“The top 12 vote-getters from the past decade of ‘Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials,’ including Adriana Lima’s Victoria’s Secret spot and E*Trade’s ‘Trading Baby,’ will go head-to-head on CBS’s site, where fans will be able to vote via Facebook and Twitter to determine the top three Super Bowl commercials of all time,” the story reports. “Those commercials will advance to the live vote during the broadcast, with the winning ad revealed at the end of the show.”
