Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tracy MorganYou usually don't think of Stevie Wonder as a good puncher, but apparently, he is. On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), Tracy Morgan talked about doing the Super Bowl commercial with Wonder.

"My arm was swollen the next day," said Morgan. "Man, he hit hard! Now I love Stevie, but I threatened him!"

And, oh yeah, there's also the little matter of Wonder trying to get Morgan's lady pregnant. And the fact that he's not really blind.

David Letterman, Super Bowl CommercialAbsolutely everyone is talking about that Super Bowl commercial with David Letterman, Jay Leno and Oprah Winfrey.

Leno dished about it on 'The Jay Leno Show' (weeknights, 10PM on NBC), and then Letterman did the same on 'Late Show with David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS).

He took a moment to tell how it all came about, and also thank the actors who played Oprah and Leno. "They did a tremendous job."

Jay Leno Dishes on the Super Bowl Commercial (VIDEO)

Jay Leno Dishes on the Super Bowl CommercialThe Internet is still abuzzin' over the Super Bowl commercial with Jay Leno, Oprah Winfrey and David Letterman. Leno talked about it on 'The Jay Leno Show' (weeknights, 10PM on NBC), and says he flew to New York City in complete secrecy to shoot the spot. He even disguised himself to get into Letterman's studio (which must have been a blast for Leno!), so none of their staff knew anything about the taping.

But the best part? Any animosity between Leno and Letterman seems to be a thing of the past. "I walk in, I see Dave, he puts his hand out and I shake hands, and you know, whatever happened over the past 18 years, disappeared," said Leno. "It was great to see my old friend again." All together now -- Awwwww! What a sweet little Valentine's story between old friends. Group hug.

The Letterman-Oprah-Leno Super Bowl Commercial (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 8th 2010 3:05AM
Super Bowl - Letterman, Leno, Oprah CommercialOne of the most puzzling and jaw-dropping Super Bowl commercials came in the form of David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey and Jay Leno, all sitting on a couch watching the game together.

"This is the worst Super Bowl party ever," grouses Letterman. Leno adds, "He's just saying that because I'm here." And Winfrey is in between the two now-competing late-night hosts making some sort of peace.

The spot was a promo for 'Late Show with David Letterman," but it seems as though all three got a little mileage out of it.

CBS Cuts Another Ad Down to Size, Literally

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 2nd 2010 6:29PM
Either CBS' advertising department is run by the biggest whiny fusspot since 'Frasier's' Niles Crane last visited his neighborhood Sizzler or these tough economic times have forced them to take Eric Cartman's "you can't come" business model to heart.

CBS has rejected yet another ad for their Super Bowl broadcast. This time, it's for the upcoming hack 'n slash adventure video game 'Dante's Inferno'. Unlike other controversial ads for GoDaddy.com and ManCrunch.com, this time they only had a problem with the commercial's tagline, "Go to Hell." Instead the ad will air with the tagline "Hell Awaits," which is way more creepy and disturbing since it implies that "Hell" is waiting to come to me instead of vice versa.

Don't watch the following ad if you're disturbed by having to read the word "Hell."

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?
