CBS also punts GoDaddy's Super Bowl ad

CBS may have opened their hearts, minds and bank accounts to advocacy groups for airtime during the Super Bowl, but it has also rejected two ads that contain themes that don't meet the network's "Standards and Practices department" requirements. Not only did they reject an ad for the gay dating website ManCrunch.com, but they have also kicked off an ad from the hotbed of notorious advertising that is GoDaddy.com, which has a similar, how you say, je ne sais quoi.

Check out the GoDaddy ad that you won't be seeing during the Super Bowl below. Warning: the following video contains a sensuous looking woman in a very revealing outfit, so those of you who were expecting the usual amount of big breasted women taking their tops off in a GoDaddy commercial might be more than a little disappointed.

Super Bowl to feature more advocacy ads

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 26th 2010 9:30PM
It looks like the commercials for the Super Bowl just got a little less hilarious, or more depending on your personal viewpoints and political persuasions.

CBS has eased the restrictions on selling spots to advocacy groups during the single most important television advertising event of the year and said it would consider "responsibly produced" ads for the Super Bowl broadcast on February 7.

The issue arose when an anti-abortion group wanted to air an ad funded by James Dobson's Focus on the Family advocacy group starring 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. Honestly, who cares? Why all this controversy over a commercial? Does it involve singing dogs or the Budweiser lizards discussing the point at which life begins? Am I the only person in the universe who watches the Super Bowl... to watch the actual Super Bowl?

Saints' historic win also kicked Seinfeld's behind

Just how historic and awesome was the New Orleans Saints' first NFC championship? It not only toppled what could be the final chapter of legendary quarterback Brett Favre's NFL history, but it also toppled one of the most epic and legendary final chapters in television's history.

Last Sunday's squeaker between the Saints and the Minnesota Vikings on Fox garnered 57.9 million viewers, which tops the Seinfeld finale in 1998.

One can only imagine what the viewership would be if the Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts and take home the Vince Lombardi trophy at Super Bowl XLIV. I mean, other than a special post-game appearance of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (I say that, of course, as a long time and beloved hometown fan of the Black and Gold. Who dat!).
