Stop Showing the Commercials!

There are so many things that get on my nerves, but today I’m focused on one…

Showing the commercials to that “Big Football Game” before the game.

One year I happened to see ALL OF THEM before the game. I can’t begin to express my feelings with G-rated words.

I like football (my husband was a football coach) and I have a pretty good grasp on the game, but the thing I like best about this particular Sunday is watching the commercials (I could take or leave the half-time show).

If I were a company that payed a ton of money for one of the coveted slots, I’d be mad if it was fast forwarded over since it was already seen.

I need to pause, turn off of fast forward morning talk shows because they keep on showing them and talking about them. ENOUGH, stop stealing my joy!

I know there are plenty of people that watch them before, then do it online. At least give the viewers at home a heads up that you’re showing one of them.

It’s just a little thing, but it’s a little thing that irks me.

End rant!

  1. Yeah it seems like they are all available online beforehand. I think TV commercials in general aren’t working the way they once were so they had to change things. It really ruins the surprise on the big day.

  2. I like to check out the commercials the next day. I have never understood why some of them come out a few days before.

  3. I am not a huge football fan but I always watch the Super Bowl commercials. I can not believe how much money companies spend on them.

  4. I love watching all the commercials during the Superbowl. It’s something I always look forward to during the game. It’s that and the food!

  5. I don’t really watch the game but I like to see all the commercials. The thing is, I’d be happy to wait until after the game to see them. Why spoil it for others?

  6. I know a lot of people who are only interested in the Super Bowl because of the commercials, but I myself cannot relate to that; I am a HUGE football fan, and I can’t wait to see my Pats take home a win and see Tom get his 5th ring woohoo

  7. I agree with you! I really just watched the game for the commercials and the fact that you get to see them early just really steals the fun out of it.

  8. I don’t watch a lot of daytime TV so I haven’t seen any of them yet. I sometimes miss the SuperBowl too – I guess I’m glad they are available online so if I hear there is a good one I can go and find it.

  9. I rarely watch live television(must love Netflix and DVRs), almost never, so I ever see commercials unless I specifically go to them online to see what the hype is about.

  10. The commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl for sure. I actually haven’t seen any leaked ones somehow, and I’m glad

  11. Well, me personally, I don’t really give a crap about the game. I usually watch for just the commercials. I would have to say that if I could watch all the good commercials and not have to sit through the game, then that would be great for me.

  12. Yay. Finally someone spoke up about this. I hope they stop doing that! It takes away the excitement of it all. I have not seen any of them (thank goodness). There is still something I can look forward to.

  13. I did think it was weird they show them early. However we don’t watch the Super Bowl but remember the commercials always being good!

  14. I usually change the channel when they show the commercials. That way I can enjoy them on the game day. My husband checks out the commercials beforehand on online, though.
