Everyone in the world will be on NBC this Super Bowl Sunday

NBC is airing the Super Bowl this year. Sunday's all-day telecast (several hours of pre-game and probably another four or so for the game itself) will feature a wide variety of guests. Which of these guests are not going to be seen during the broadcast?

Keith Olbermann
Sarah Palin
Tina Fey
Top Chef's Tom Colicchio
Matt Lauer
Al Roker
Bruce Springsteen
Bob Costas
Jay Leno
Conan O'Brien

The answer? If you said Sarah Palin, you'd be wrong. NBC Sports head Dick Ebersol hints strongly that she's going to be part of the pre-game in some way (God, I hope Tina Fey doesn't show up as Palin again - I hope all of that is finally over). All of the NBC regulars on the list will be there too, either working the game or promoting the prime time NBC lineup (lots of ads for NBC shows like Heroes and Chuck will be seen during the game coverage too). What's Colicchio going to do? Cook, of course. I'm guessing chili or nachos or chicken wings of some degree of hotness. I wonder if new late-night star Jimmy Fallon with show up?

The pre-game coverage starts at noon. The actual game starts at 6pm. Well, probably later than that because of the introductions and the coin toss and everything else. We'll have coverage of the best and worst Super Bowl commercials after the game, and AOL Television will have coverage too.

She's going to be in a pre game ad.

Here's a clip from the shoot.

A live appearence of Grace Park would be the halftime of my dreams. If Grace Park would come....the heck with the football game!

"God, I hope Tina Fey doesn't show up as Palin again"

But how about Palin vs Fey mud wrestling? Never thought of that, did you?
